Oyster Creek drops over a 25' ledge in a very attractive waterfall and into a little pool. The view is currently blocked from the front by a very annoying tree that has fallen across the face so the only clear photos were from the side. If that tree were to be removed (hint, hint), the falls would look really nice from the front. Somehow I missed this small, but very pretty waterfall on my first trip into Oyster Creek Falls. It's odd because the falls can be clearly heard from the logging road.
|DIRECTIONS - Follow
the directions to Oyster Creek Falls. About 1/4
mile before leaving the main logging road, it flattens out temporarily and goes over a
grassy wetlands area. You should be able to hear the falls from the road at this
point. Just scramble about 50' from the road to the falls.
