About this Waterfall

This is a first-class, sizeable waterfall hidden in the wilderness, yet still easily accessible by car. George Fischer features this as the cover photo on the 3rd edition of our book. The main falls is a tall cascade about 12 m in height and 5 to 6 m in width. It pours into a deep, narrow forested gorge that is not lined with fences or safety walls. The gorge walls are high and steep. Be careful here! At places, the gorge walls are rounded at the top such that you can't walk up and look over "the edge". The falls is quite big, and I wasn't able to photograph the whole thing with my digital camera's widest setting.

For the best, and safest place to view the gorge, walk past the partial clearing in the woods that is immediately downstream of the falls. There is a big sign reading "danger" here, where the underbrush has been removed, but the tall trees remain. Walk downstream along the top of the gorge by maybe 20-30 m until you see a a weak path leading off to the left down a gently sloping portion of the forest. This ends at a rocky point just downstream of the falls, where you are able to view most of the falls. Be careful - I don't think that there is a fence!
