(What do these stats mean?)

One of the big three at Wawa. (another, Wawa Falls, is just a few hundred metres downstream). You can see this waterfall from the road, but the best way to explore is to follow the trail that leads up the far (left) side of the river. It's a moderate hike through the woods to the top. Be careful at the top, because there are no guard rails. Once you reach the top go just a bit further... there is a second waterfall that can't be seen from the road. It's smaller and not as photogenic as the main falls. Getting a good photograph of Silver Falls can be a bit of a challenge. You need a long lense from the road, or you need to ~carefully~ make your own path down through the woods to the pond downstream of the falls. Do NOT try to make your way into the gorge at the base of the falls. This, would be dangerous!  (updated June 20, 2014).
