(What do these stats mean?)

The low waterfall here has been extensively modified by a low dam. It doesn't make for great waterfall photography, but there are some photographic opportunities here. An old tin-clad mill sits across the river at the far end of the waterfall. Be careful, as the rocks can be slippery and a sign proclaims that swimmers have died at this location before. The side of the river with the mill is off-limits, but I was able to wander around the other side without running into Private Property signs. I have seen people painting at this site on more than one occasion. Along the river bank, you can observe the younger, flat-lying Paleozoic rocks overlying the older Pre-Cambrian rocks.  (updated June 20, 2014).
