The falls from downstream

 

Details:

The GNIS database showed the falls downstream while the USGS database shows the falls in the given location. My son and I visited the area and found a nice waterfall, not spectacular, but certainly worth the small bushwhack down into the valley. This served as his first "thrill of the chase" waterfall, and he was delighted to find something where we only suspected a waterfall to be.

 

Geology and Bedrock Structure:

Photography Notes:

The falls are quite photogenic and make a decent slow shutter study. The woods open up a bit just below the falls, so bracket your exposures as the uneven lighting is hard to meter. The falls face south and would most definitely benefit from early morning or late afternoon light.

 

Directions:

Drive south on Route 14 exactly one mile from Woodbury. Park at the wide spot in the road and carefully pick your way down the steep bank. You'll be able to hear the falls.
