Comments/Notes: The trail is easy to follow along an old dirt road. At about .3 miles you will come to where you see the road starts upward and to the right. Just before this look for the sign nailed to a tree on your left for the falls. It is another .1 miles to the falls. Best time would be early spring or after some good rain, as it is a trickle during summer. It is hard to explain this in writing, but the stream comes down and drops into a section of boulders. The falls are partially hidden here and continues down under the rocks.

Directions: From County Rte 28 and Big Moose Rd, in Eagle Bay, Get on Big Moose Rd and drive north for 5.7 miles. The trailhead parking area will be on your left.
