About this Waterfall

Rockway Falls is a surprisingly visitable waterfall, with a deep gorge and good photography and hiking. Yet many people in the area appear to be unaware that it's here. The gorge is at least as deep as that of nearby Balls Falls, and you may see people rock climbing and rappelling. I consider Rockway Falls to be one of the primary examples of a "ramp" waterall. Water slides over the bedrock at a very steep angle, but does not lose contact with the rock at any time.

Park in the lot and walk through the woods along either rim of the gorge. If you follow along the right bank (looking downstream) you can find a safe place to access the river, but will then need to walk back upstream to the base of the falls.
