I visited Crabtree Falls in Nelson County, VA, on VA 56, on the east side of the Blue Ridge, west of Lovingston, in the George Washington National Forest, about 5 miles into the forest.
The road is steep and winds along the stream below the falls. The Falls may be the highest east of the Mississippi (about 1200 feet total). The lower two segments are visible from the parking lot, only 0.1 mile walk.
In Nelson County, along US 29, there are many “No Pipeline” signs.
As a crow flies, it is not far from the Monroe Institute, south of Charlottesville.
The mountain ridge at the top is generally around 3500 feet.
