The Flume - on Gill Brook

Postby cbobcat49 » Thu Jul 31, 2008 4:59 pm

We came across this falls on the road walk back from Lower Ausable Lake. The road, belonging to the Ausable Club (the public can't drive on it), roughly parallels Gill Brook, a large tributary of the Ausable River. The sign pointing to this little falls only said "The Flume". It's about 10-15 feet high and the creek goes through a very narrow maybe 6 foot wide mini-gorge at this point. Julie got some excellent photos here that I'll coerce her to post. ;)

Nah, your pic is as good as mine. I have resisted your arm-twisting this time.

Just a correction for your waterfall list, Matt... This is on Gill Brook, not the Ausable. Gill Brook is a major tributary of the Ausable though.
