(What do these stats mean?)

Though the west half of this site is on private property, the east half is worth a short stop. There is no main waterfall, and this is really just a collection of small rapids and chutes. The South River pours 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. You can also walk along the road for about 200 m to a short driveway on the left that leads to a parking area overlooking the river just upstream from the falls. This also provides a view of the small water level dam above the falls.   (updated June 20, 2014).
