I found this small waterfall while searching for the main falls on Austin Creek.  My first time into the falls, the volume of water was fairly low but it was still pretty seeing the small creek drop into Austin Creek proper.  When I went back a week later, I was amazed at how much better the falls was with more water.  Lower Trataka Falls would probably only be worth the trip during high volume stretches, but since it's right on the way to Austin Creek Falls, it's worth the tough trip.
