Roadside and beautiful!

This beauty can only be seen from the roadside but is worth a visit. The property is private and cannot be directly accessed, so please respect the landowners’ rights.

When looking at Google maps, the falls are obscured by trees. You will see additional falls which are also on private property. It’s suggested you pair this visit with another location since you will be able to see this from the road only.

While in the area, check out the Farmer markets and local businesses. Fresh eggs, fruit, vegetables! We always advocate checking for these types of markets and local businesses. You can never go wrong when supporting local!

NOTE: If you are a local business or family and know of a great place nearby, please let us know!!

Comments/Notes: Viewing is from the small bridge that crosses over Whetstone Creek. Again, this is located on private property.
