I have not yet been able to get a real good look at this falls, so I'm not real sure as to the height, width, etc. From what I have seen there appear to be at least two tiers that total around 40' tall, but that is a very rough estimate and the falls could be much bigger. If I get a closer view I suspect the rating will go up. The creek the falls lie on is pretty good sized so the falls look to be fairly significant. Next time I'm in the area, I will try to get across Day Creek for a closer look and more specific details. I named the falls after former president Martin Van Buren.
|DIRECTIONS - Follow
the directions to Jackson Falls. From the ridge near
the top of Jackson Falls, you should be able to see Van Buren Falls across Day Creek and a
little ways up the hillside. It should be possible to cross Day Creek on a big
logjam close by and climb up the hillside to the falls but I haven't done that so I can't
say for sure.
