Below is a Devon Fletcher Photo of Lower Silver Creek Falls. This falls drops about 40 feet in 3 tiers. This photo shows 2 of the 3 tiers.
The Lower Silver Creek Gorge holds Lower Silver Creek Falls along with count-less small falls and water-slides. This is a beautiful canyon and a fabulous hike.
I love hiking on hard-pan bed-rock...
