(What do these stats mean?)

When visiting nearby Albion Falls, don't miss the short walk to Buttermilk Falls. Unfortunately, the small size of this waterfall's watershed keeps it dry for most of the year. Watch for good flows within 6-12 hours after a good long rain storm. An interesting way to visit this falls is to make your way to the bottom of Albion Falls and then hike down the river for about 500 m to the tributary valley on the left. Hike upstream through the forested gorge bottom to the base of the falls. It should be pretty quiet down here as most people tend to hang around Albion Falls.   (updated 41810).
