I have yet to complete the entire Gorge trail. I have included all the resource information that I have. I cannot confirm exact location since I have not hiked the whole trail. Google imagery shows the falls very clearly. If the information I provided here is different or wrong, or you have additional information to provide, feel free to let me know.
