Comments, Notes: I started to check out this stretch of area known to the kayackers, but this first stop did not bring me to anything, and so we moved on. Google maps shows the location of the falls. The American Whitewater states this is a 3 tiered waterfall totaling about 100 ft. There are 10 named waterfalls in this location. Now that I have obtained more information regarding location and access, plans to return in the future.
