Upper Falls Landing is a natural landing at the Upper Falls of Coal River that provides the necessary watercraft portage around the historic Upper Falls Dam and Upper Falls Lock. The landing actually consists of a man-made landing upstream of the Upper Falls and the natural landing downstream. This location is on the Walhonde Water Trail along the Coal River.
