About this Waterfall

A very picturesque cascade that I have yet to fully explore. My only two visits, 15 years apart were either at dusk or during rain. Both times I was on a timeline to get on somewhere, and so I have yet to make it to the main falls at the top of the set. This is long rocky cascade with lots of exposed rock on either side of the river. There is a dedicated parking lot at the end of a short driveway on the east side of Hwy 17. The walk to the falls is brief. Rather than one large falls, the falls stretch over perhaps 100 m or so. The biggest falls isn't that far upstream and should be easy to access. The trail can be a little rocky and uneven, though it is well worn.
