I have not seen this waterfall before. It is found just upstream from the southern tip of a bay on Galeairy Lake. Farm Bay becomes very shallow and you can usually only paddle to the location.

NOTE: The coordinates listed are approximate only. Online sources say that a trail from the lakeshore leads about 300-400 m to the small falls. The trailhead is shown to be located on the southeast shore of the bay, maybe 100-200 m before the southern tip of the bay. The trailhead is reportedly near a rock outcrop; the trail leads inland a bit before ending at the falls.

UPDATE 2024: Anneke found this waterfall and asserts that it is a bit closer to the bay than I show it to be.

The paddle from Whitney would be about 6 km. This is just beyond my 5km cutoff for coding a waterfall 'blue' (one that can be reached in an afternoon). I inclulded it anyway, and to be fair, some people motorboat to this location.

The driving directions lead to the Galeairy Lake Boat Ramp in Whitney, just for convenience for those that might plan to paddle to this spot.
