Trail Description: walk up the hill along the old logging road, somewhere near 300 meters. The falls are on your left hand side, with a path easily seen leading down into the gully at the base of the falls. Further up along the stream there are many small cascades, but these are the main attraction along this brook.

These charming twin falls drop nearly identical cascades a few meters from eachother, splitting around an outcropping and rejoining as one flow below the falls.  The left hand side fall has, in recent years, been quite dry, standing out in stark contrast to the beautiful fall on the right hand side.
