  ROARING CREEK FALLS  
RATING - 32.0

Roaring Creek Falls is an absolute stunner!  The large volume of Roaring Creek plunges 45' into a verdant, mossy, green grotto.  During high volume stretches the creek takes on the beautiful fan-shaped drop seen here.  When the creek is lower the falls can have a single plunge, but it should be beautiful any time of the year.  The falls itself is located on private property, so watch for stakes around the falls indicating where the property line sits.  If you're standing in the plunge pool you've gone too far. 

The bushwhack up the creek is a little tricky because of a small pond just off the road.  You'll have to backtrack down the road a bit to get around the pond and then head towards the creek.
