Lower and Upper Akron Falls

Lower & Upper Akron Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The water in Lower Akron Falls is channeled at the crest. Depending on water level it may form a curtain or several narrow wisps as the water freefalls to the gorge below. Upper Akron Falls, found 600 feet upstream, is also a free fall from an overhung caprock but it fills the width of the creek channel.

In summer you can walk the creekbed to the base of the falls, but it is a dangerous place to walk. The rocks are unsupported and loose. Erosion is an ongoing event here as the waterfall slowly walks upstream. There is a cave below the main part of the upper waterfall. It used to be blocked by a metal grate but the forces of nature have damaged the grating, so it’s now open. Do not attempt to enter the cave."
