(What do these stats mean?)

This waterfall is an interesting example of the ramp form which occurs where a strong resistant caprock formation is absent. This prevents the formation of a "plunge" class waterfall (eg. Balls Falls), because there is no hard rock layer protruding over the softer rocks. This falls hasn't been as developed for visiting. But if you are careful, it isn't too hard to make your way down the wooded slope to the base of the falls. Photography is way better here. In the nearby conservation area (off Quarry Rd) there is an interpretive sign that includes a photo by yours truly!  (updated 41810).
