Comments, Notes: The times I was there the bridge was out/closed Updated: 10/11/2015 The bridge is now open. The section of photos you will see at the bottom of the page is located across the road from the actual dam. I called this Lower Falls, but have not found reference to them being named. Update: Additional information for this area can be found on the American Whitewater. Lower Falls aka The Slides III
