Eastatoe Falls

Eastatoe Falls

A combination of free falls and cascades. This is one of the most photogenic waterfalls around. The flow splits nicely as it comes down, before re-combining again to pour into the plunge pool at the base. Many little overhangs, slopes, and stairsteps in the rock make lots of interesting patterns for the water to play on, and the creek has a decent flow too.

Driving Directions

This waterfall is located on private property behind a residence.

It should go without saying, but since this waterfall is in someone's back yard, there should be no horseplay, no loud yelling, no dogs, no littering, and no visits early in the morning or late in the day to this one.

Trail Description

The path to the falls is along the edge of a mowed lawn, then up an easy path for just over 200 yards. Just before the falls, the path climbs up a bit and goes down a set of stairs.
