I pulled into what I thought was the parking area for Springfield Falls, only to find out that I was just a bit off. There’s a jeweler’s shop right near the falls, but that’s not where you want to start your short journey. (Some place on the web says to start here. It’s not even a good place to view the falls.) After someone let me know, I went a bit further down the road to the official parking area.
From the official parking area, it’s extremely easy to get to Springfield Falls. There’s a short downhill hike to get a view of the falls. At about 15′ tall, it’s not a big waterfall, but I do find that it’s a very photogenic waterfall. Even on a sunny day (which isn’t usually great for waterfalls), you’ll likely get some good shots.
- There are multiple different ways to arrive at Springfield Falls, so let me give you a general sense of it’s location. If you’re on I-80, you would take exit 15.
- You would head south on US-19 for just over 3.5 miles.
- If you were heading south, you’d turn left onto Leesburg Station Road (Road 2002). Go past the jewelers, and continue onto Falls Road.
- After a very short distance, you’ll come to a parking area on your right, and the falls will be to your left across the road from the parking area.
Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Length of Hike: 0.1 miles round-trip (at most)
