Wedge Brook is home to three waterfalls. The most notable is found in the middle of the three and is named Wedge Brook Falls, an 8ft falls located on the trail next to the footbridge that crosses Wedge Brook. These falls get their name from their appearance as a large boulder has become wedged between the two large rock walls. Water is diverted around the sides of the wedged boulder then combine into a single drop.
The first is a 10ft waterfall directly below this falls that is accessible with a scramble down or visible from the top ridge. The third and largest falls are located several hundred feet up the trail and stand at approximately 30ft.
