Summary: This waterfall can be found in the scenic Monongahela National Forest. The middle and lower falls are on the same trail. This is the smallest, least scenic and hardest to see of the three falls, but it is the first you will encounter.

Upper Hill Creek Falls is in the Monongahela National Forest, near Marlinton, West Virginia. The Falls of Hill Creek Scenic Area can be reached from the Highland Scenic Byway (Route 39/55). They are about 5 miles west of Route 219.

There is a well groomed trail into the gorge. Part of the trail is paved, but the later part consists of boardwalks and a lot of stairs. This is the first fall on the trail and comes before all the stairs. Unfortunately the view from the observation deck is not all that great. If you continue down the trail it will take you past the Middle Falls before ending at a view platform in front of the Lower Falls.
