“Great Waterfall”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is an AWESOME waterfall if you're there after the snowmelt or after a lot of rainfall. It was epic after Hurricane Irene. The pictures I posted were from late April after a pretty snowless winter. Last summer during the drought, it was pretty unimpressive. So bear this in mind before driving any great distance to visit. It is not handicapped accessible by any stretch of the imagination. To get a decent glimpse of it, you must hike a short while (fine for little kids) but there are steep, muddy hills. The rock climbing here is fun. When I was a kid you could swim here. But there have been many drunken diving accidents. Bring lunch. It's a great place for a picnic. Because it's very shady, this is a nice cool spot on a hot day. Bring bug spray. It can be pretty buzzy here.
