Hatch Hill Falls

Postby bremer » Mon May 24, 2010 10:39 pm

This is on a seasonal tributary in Hi Tor near naples. Location It's not much of a waterfall but its on public land and its easily accessed. Besides, if zoo falls is featured in a guide book...... The easiest way to get here is to go through the naples community park off of 245. This is where the high school/community sports teams play. Once at the lot you can see the gully on the hill. Head towards it and you will find a disc golf course. The trails for this course pass over the tributary once or twice. This can also be accessed from the bristol hills trail which starts at the dec office just up the road from the community park. The walk is probably 2 miles road trip with this option though as the trail really takes its time getting there.

What's the best way to access that creek? I see a cleared path or right of way type thing coming down from the northeast. Would it be through there?

The disc golf course actually crosses beneath the powerline corridor and much of it is in the woods. The pathways/cleared channels for the course will take you right to where the hillside begins. I'm really not sure which holes to follow as I just followed the maze so to speak and tried to go in the general direction of the gully. There was actually a herd path heading up the north rim that might go to the upper part of the gully but I didnt explore it. After just a minute or two of walking up the stream bed you will come to the falls I have pictured, which aren't climbable. There are surely many more falls as there is still a lot of elevation to gain, but this was at the end of a long day for me and I didn't explore the rest.
