Lots of trash in the water.

Solo adventure

Today after kayaking and swimming w/ friends at Red Top - I decided to check these falls off my list. Some areas - the water was plain gross - others it was beautiful. The people around were very kind, the distance was enjoyable, lots of shallow areas, definitely not somewhere I would swim, but kids were swimming at the falls. One guy caught a catfish. I did see a fair amount of wildlife. Turtles, blue heron, egret, butterfly, duck! These directions get you to the parking lot. Once you are in the water go left towards 75 bridge, you can see it from where you put in. If you go the wrong way you can’t go too far so you will know when you see you have to turn around. Stay to the right, when you see open lake there is a place you can go to right - i think there were two areas i stayed to the right. I first came to a dead end but heard the falls - just had to loop to the other side of the y and i was there!

Nice Waterfall!

This is an easy and short kayak trip from Rope Mill Park. Really enjoyed it!
