I've only seen this waterfall once, and it was almost dry. This was during a time when most of the other waterfalls in the Short Hills Provincial Park were flowing. It was late in the day, and I was exhausted, as the spring mud was clinging to my boots and making every step painful.

But I think that this could (?) be a sleepy surprise waterfall in this park. It probably only flows during the wettest periods of the year. The gorge isn't wide, but it is surprisingly deep. I didn't make my way to the bottom. Catching this with a good flow could be tough, but could (?) be rewarding.

The coordinates for this waterfall are approximate only. I do recall that it had easy access to a good trail, which was probably the Black Walnut Trail. But I can't recall exactly which tributary it was found along. Examination of the topographic map was inconclusive. If you find it, please let me know where it is!

Parking is available in the lot at the end of Wiley Rd. Unlike for most of the waterfalls in the park, visitors have to walk north back out of the parking lot until they encounter a trail on the left. I think that this is is the Black Walnut Trail. The hike isn't too far, but I can't recall exactly where it goes.

Be warned that flows can be very low to nil during much of the year. Probably most of the year. Like all the falls in the Short Hills, you really need to plan your visit during the wettest times of the year, like after a big rain in Spring.
