One of West Virginia's largest state parks, located in a narrow valley east of Sutton and I-79, is adorned with a handful of waterfalls. Holly River State Park spreads over 8,000 acres, interlaced with 40 miles of trails. These hiking trails are cut through a heavily forested countryside. These trails lead to Tenskwatawa and Tecumseh waterfalls, named for two legendary Indian chiefs. One of the most scenic sites is found on the Potato Knob Trail. Lacking a dramatic name as the park's Indian chiefs, the Upper Falls of the West Fork of the Holly River is still the most picturesque falls in the park.
