Cow Creek Falls

-is private land NO TRESPASSING…!!!

Cow Creek Falls is roughly 20’ high and is obstructed by a 20 foot boulder that had recently fallen out of cliff.   This beauty lies totally on private land.  This photo was provided by guests of the Honey Boy Ranch, who desire to remain anonymous.


Cow Cr Falls has many other waterfalls both upstream and downstream from it.  This one is upstream and is about 10’ high.


…and another 10 footer downstream a ways… and there are many more than this…
