Cascades of Attica

Postby Matt » Wed Apr 22, 2009 5:25 pm

two drops... 30-something feet.
birdseye

Topo

There also seems to be a falls downstream: birdseye

And a sizable one upstream

and another

Accessibility for any of them is doubtful.

We went here yesterday. It is in fact the Cascades of Attica. It's good to see this accessable now. At the trailhead on the west side of the creek the owner posted a sign saying something to the effect: "Please carry out all trash or this will become posted." Looks like people are abiding. There was not one scrap of litter anywhere to be found.

Ahh... okay... I had them marked as more towards cascade rd. I'll update this title to reflect... yeah I heard these were accessible now. :up: A big thanks to the land owner, and I'll make sure I bring a bag to pick up any trash I see.

Any pics from your visit?

Julie forgot her camera so I let her use mine the whole time. I haven't looked at what she took yet. We went to Warsaw Falls too yesterday.

How's the flow there? I've been meaning to add some better photos to the profile for Warsaw.

Average. It wasn't roaring but it wasn't low. In a dry summer it may dry to a trickle by August.

Taken on Sunday:

The upper falls...

We didn't go down to the base of the main falls. I know there's a rope you can use to get down there. At least there was last time I was here many years ago.

An interesting sign we saw along the way. The town must have run out of "truck going uphill" signs. :)

There's the small 15 footer that's in the picture. Then there's a giant 60-80 foot falls a bit downstream from that that spills into a deep gorge. There's a small cascade similar to the upper falls that's below the large one. We did not climb down into the gorge on Sunday to see that one. The fourth one may be the one upstream from the bridge that you posted an aerial shot of. We didn't see that because the land on that side of the road was heavily posted.
