|Comments/Notes:||I first visited this location in March of 2010, and then did a revisit in October of 2014. Back in 2010 the bridge was open and I believe that I seen the 4 waterfalls as indicated in the resources. On this day I traveled from north to south.
In October of 2014, the bridge was out and I did not get to the first waterfall which was north of the bridge as we were traveling up from the south to north. From the intersection of 5S and Creek Rd at .8 miles, is Falls 1, a 30 ft Cascade N42.99568 W74.78874. At 2.0 miles from the intersection of 5S and Creek Rd, is falls 2, a 40 ft Cascade N42.98710 W74.79959. Go a few hundred feet further is falls 3, a 15 ft cascade N42.98804 W74.80636.
