Bear Canyon Dam Spillway

This is kinda pretty…. For being “man-made” …it’s maybe 30’ high


You will find this man-made waterfall snuggled right up close to State Hwy 35 / 61 about 2 miles north of Membres.  A dam was built to form Bear Creek Reservoir and instead of building a concrete spillway they channeled the water to pour over this natural cliff.  …good job feds.
