Great Gully Falls (4 falls) Professional Review and Guide

"The full ravine is 4 miles long and 150-feet deep. The small section you’ll walk offers 4 waterfalls, most with pools at their base that are good for swimming. The largest of these falls is an 18-foot drop from an overhung limestone caprock. Below it is a massive cavern, 15-feet deep. Please don’t enter this cave. Waterfalls are very unstable. In spring a torrent of water 40- feet wide rushes over this precipice. By end of summer it dwindles to two or three ribbons of water. It might be possible to climb above this waterfall if you bring ropes and wear crampons. There is a narrow ledge along the right side as you face the waterfall. Just remember, climbing down is more difficult than climbing up, so do not attempt it without ropes. It’s better to enjoy this waterfall from the base, play in its pool and head back downstream."
