    Ok, I figured what was going on. The picture you have is of what they call “The Wedge Brook Cascades”. Wedge Brook Falls is lower and you cross a foot bridge over the 1st and 2nd part. Then there is an even lower 3rd section that is about a 20′ drop. I don’t know why they call those the cascades. It looks like a waterfall to me! lol I can email you the pictures of the actual Wedge Brook Falls so you can post those as well, if you want.

      Thank You John, I have yet to get all the pics of the area posted yet (that I have).. Since I was here I had found more resources to the other waterfalls in the St Hubert’s section. I believe I may have captured the section you are referring to. I am in the process of revamping the website as you may have noticed and will included all of my hike here. I have a facebook page if you wish to share your photos there. If you have a link you would like me to share on the page here send it to me and I can add it. I am in hopes to get to the northern section within the next few weeks (revamp). Thanks

    This must be a different section of Wedge Brook Falls I am used to. As far as I know there are 3 sections to it on the West River Trail and the pic you have doesn’t look like the 3 I have. I’d post the three sections I have but there isn’t an option to.
