"Set in a moss and fern covered glen, the water free-falls at a 45 degree angle in the creekbed, then rolls over tight layers of shale for the rest of its journey. A very easy, short walk on a dirt trail takes you to the base of this idyllic waterfall. Take bug spray if you plan to stay any length of time. Bugs also find this an appealing location. Or, visit in winter when bugs are not a problem, and the waterfall is partially frozen over forming a wintertime spectacle." Read more
