Waterfall on Burnthouse Branch

A small stream pours over a rounded cliff face, and then splits into two main parts as the cliff becomes more jagged below. It cascades and free-falls down a fairly high drop, ending among mossy boulders. Some smaller cascades are within and around the boulders below. Small trees sprout from the cliff face and vines grow down it, giving it a lush appearance.
