Dark Hollow Falls
Shenandoah National Park
Shenandoah National Park is one of those places that make you grateful to live near Virginia. Filled with local wildlife (if you're lucky, you'll see a black bear!), phenomenal views, and multiple waterfalls, the whole place is worth exploring, but Dark Hollow Falls is decidedly special. Rising almost 1,400ft above sea level, the tiered waterfall gives visitors a chance to see numerous cascades all at once. This one is better for experienced hikers, though. The trail is difficult, but totally worth it.
How to get there: About 100 miles straight down Route 66.
