About this Waterfall

The waterfall at Belfountain Conservation Area is a pleasant surprise. This is a great family outing as it's a well developed park and the walk to the falls is short. There are trails on the far side that you can use to extend the visit. I didn't find it until many years after I started this inventory. The upper portion of the falls has been increased in height by a dam that holds back a recreational pond. But the lower portion is an all natural cascade. A suspension style footbridge crosses the river gorge immediately downstream of the falls making for a great visiting experience.

Trails on the far side of the river lead into the rocky woods. It's hard to find a place to park in Belfountain. I like to park at the top of the hill and then walk back downhill (3-4 mins) to the conservation area. The falls is at the back end of the pond. Look for the "cave" just downstream of the falls. Finally, be sure to stop for ice cream on the way back to your car!
