(What do these stats mean?)

The waterfall at Belfountain Conservation Area is a pleasant surprise. I didn't find it until many years after I started this inventory. The upper portion of the falls has been increased in height by a dam that holds back a recreational pond. But the lower portion is an all natural cascade. A suspension style footbridge crosses the river gorge immediately downstream of the falls making for a great visiting experience. Trails on the far side of the river lead into the rocky woods. It's hard to find a place to park in Belfountain. I like to park at the top of the hill and then walk back downhill (3 mins) to the conservation area. The falls is at the back end of the pond.  (updated 41810).
