Waterfall 2 on Fork of Staire Branch

It looks higher than it is from the road. You can barely see it with leaves on the trees, and it's best seen in the winter. It's a series of shallow slides, and it needs high flow to be worth stumbling up to from the road.

It is located beside FR 74 between Walker Falls and Douglas Falls.
