Akron Falls

Akron Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Legend has it that in the early 1800s, several murders took place right here in a single night: A family became unsuspecting victims of a desperate man named Sanders, an Indian man named Gray Wolf died defending a young native woman from this crazed killer, and Sanders died of wounds inflicted by Gray Wolf. The story differs depending on who tells it, but the event gave this waterway its name: Murder Creek.

This waterfall viewpoint straddles the edge between developed land and wilderness. Depending on the season, you may see a raging torrent of greenish water and churning foam, or a soothing trickle cascading serenely over the precipice. Go in early spring or in autumn to see the falls at their most exciting."
