This is a short hike through the woods to a nice falls. The trailhead is at the landfill and not real well marked. Doesn't seem like a very popular tourist spot, but may be nice for a quick stop if you need a stretch.

Easy walk to this delightful spot. The falls were beautiful and the pools looked inviting. Nice out of the way spot for a picnic or a rest by some gurgling water.

One of the easiest falls to walk to. At about 50' high it's just high enough to be impressive. Well worth a visit.

This Water Fall was Amazing! A Must see!! A short hike in. You can actually get under the water fall pretty easily. Swimming pools also. This is a Must see. You will surely have the " Awwww" Factor. Go Now!!

Hiked to these falls, about a half mile each way. Down hill outbound and pretty steep hill for the return. Good view at the bottom but lots of steep terrain around the falls if you want to climb to the top or into the brook....More

Yes! Some pools have very shallow spots. As long as you're right there you'll be all set!
