About South River Cascade

Though the west half of this site is on private property, the east half is worth a short stop. Sort of... There is no main waterfall, and this is really just a collection of small rapids. In 2010, work to construct dams and small hydro power significantly reduced the interest of this site since I first visited a long time ago. The South River used to pour over a wide expanse of exposed bedrock, splitting into a number of narrower channels, and passing under the road via two concrete bridges. You can wander out on the bare polished bedrock between the two main channels and explore the site to a degree. When I visited in spring, 2022, there was much less to see from a water flow perspective. The site was still interesting, however, with some interpretive signs and a few hydroelectric generating artifacts. A family was having a picnic out on the rock. Flow was much reduced. If you have visited during spring freshet, please let us know how it looks!
