On our first visit to this waterfall, we readily found the
trailhead based on the directions in the sidebar but were
concerned about the posted signs just to the right of it.
We saw a neighbor working in his yard so we approached him and
asked about it. He assured us that we didn't have to be
concerned about the signs, the town has a right-of-way into the
falls. He even offered to guide us in, an offer we took
him up on. On the way out, we passed a group of close to
ten people going in, one of them on a four-wheeler, so there
must be something to this right-of-way!
The trail leading in to the
waterfall is fairly
easy to navigate. We were told that there were arrows on
the trees pointing the way. By the time we visited, these had
apparently been removed and replaced with ribbons!
are three drops to this waterfall. The top drop is the
smallest at about three feet. The second and third drops
are in the neighborhood of ten to twelve feet each. You
can easily cross the creek, at least during low water, to get to
the other side and get a better vantage point. The bottom
drop is a bit of a different story. A hiker in reasonably
good shape could probably scale the steps over which these falls
drop. You might get wet or dirty, or both, especially
coming back up. We opted not to try it but will return for
photos of this lower section. We will either take ropes or
a drone for the return trip!

clerk on June 5, 2017 has clarified that locally this is actually known as
Fall Brook Falls.
The Fall Brook flows into the Salmon River, which flows into
