The falls on lower Butcher Branch cascade off the vertical rock wall within the vibrant greenery of the New River Gorge in West Virginia

A moderately strenuous trail will provide hikers a convenient connector route between the Long Point Trail and the Kaymoor Top trailhead area. The trail crosses Butcher Branch, where hikers can enjoy respite from the heat in summer. Steep grades ascend and descend along the Butcher Branch trail crossings.

Kaymoor Top Trailhead: From US-19 at Fayetteville, WV, follow WV-16 south to a left onto Gatewood Road (CR-9). Follow Gatewood two miles to the left onto Kaymoor Top Road (CR-9/2). Follow one mile and bear left into the parking area
