Hulls Falls

Postby L_G_D » Tue Jun 09, 2009 9:14 pm

First off, I apologize in advance for the quality of these pics, they were shot on cheap film way back when, under poor lighting conditions.

Hulls Falls is one of those places that was a popular swimming spot at one time. Back then, the signs read "Enter at your own risk" and lots of people did. You parked along the road and walked around the fence down to the falls where there's a great pool to swim in. But, that has all changed, the signs are now the standard "Posted - No Trespassing" signs and I haven't seen anyone in there in several years. These shots were taken before the situation changed.

First off the standard lazy summer afternoon at the swimmng hole shot:

The right fall of the lower set

The falls that are above the bridge

and a parting shot of the swimmers from the bridge, high contrast due to bright sun

That's it for this one, unless the ownership situation changes and the public is allowed access again, that's all I'll ever have.

We visited here in September of '07 after climbing Cascade Mountain. It's a nice scenic spot!

Were the posted signs still there? Or did you just sneak in?

We just looked at it from the bridge. Not because we saw signs but we didn't have enough time to go down for a closer look. We did see people down there though.

Really, that's interesting. Might be one of those "no harm no foul" type of posted areas. I'll have to swing by there the next time I'm up that way.

Just drove by...heavily posted and fenced right to bridge. I would think this is considered navigable though so another approach might work.

Thanks for the info. It would be easy enough to walk down along the stream from the rte 73 bridge.

Anyone been here lately? The road was closed from both directions.

Drove past a few weeks ago, and I think they are working on the bridge.
