Cave Creek Falls
Cave Creek has many waterfalls... but this 20 footer dropping into a slot canyon is a favorite- it is second from the top on the map below
The falls below is the first one you come to walking upstream from your wheels...
The 30’ waterfall below is the highest so it must be the real Cave Falls. It is also the fartherest upstream.....
...nuther 20’ falls
…and a nuthern…
The presence of moss on the rock in these falls suggests that Magner Spring has strong flow and must be perennial
