The falls from downstream.

 

Details:

Bradley Brook is a smaller stream that drains the western side of the upper reaches of the Mad River. Like most tributaries, it goes over some sort of drop or drops as it descends into the Mad River valley. The falls are a minor feature, where the waters of Bradley Brook swirl over a bedrock ledge, pass below a bridge, then drop over an angled bedrock ledge a short distance above the confluence with the Mad River.

Photography Notes:

This waterfall should be shot after the leaves are on the trees, and with care to frame the falls in order to avoid the ugly concrete bridge at the crest. The falls face east and will be in shade during the latter part of the afternoon. This isn't a wildly photogenic waterfall, but if carefully composed, it could be rendered in a flattering manner.

 

Directions:

The falls are just below the bridge on West Hill Road, near the intersection of Ellen Lane, just off Route 100 in Warren.
