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.
