THE FALLS:

As we hiked to this waterfall, we were reminded of Step Falls in Maine. Although not as grandeur, there are many similarities. This waterfall consists of short horsetails and slides that snake their way around ledges and rocks in the riverbed. There are lots of refreshing wading areas, and the potential to sit in some of the slides. High water levels are optimal at these falls, so time your visit for the springtime. To add to the fun, be sure to continue along the Mt Meader Trail to ledges found just below the summit of Mt. Meader. There are great views of Evans Notch that await your visit here.
