Wyandotte Falls information: These waterfalls are very easy to get to. See Driving directions above. Located on the Misery River the water levels at this series of falls is dependent on current rainfalls or spring melt being at the headwaters of the Misery River. During dry summers the falls can really dry up to a trickle, this part of the river is dependent on the levels of Lake Roland and Gerald and any runoff from rain. Once you arrive at the GPS point for parking, make your way down the trail into the forest. The forest full of hemlock, maple, and some pine greets you. The area is well traveled and the trail is easy to walk down with a few roots and rocks. There are two sets of falls here. The first you come to is just beneath a large pile of conglomerate rock, it is part cascading falls and slide falls with a pool of water at the top (as of Early Aug 2016 large tree fell over the river). There is a nice overlook which you can see all the way up the falls. This is a pretty spot to photograph especially if you get down at the rivers edge and climb around on the mossy covered rock, you'll be greeted by the 12ft high rock face. Make your way down the trail to the larger drop the main attraction. The trails edge is right next to the upper part of the falls. Move around down to the bottom and you can snap all the pictures you want. Get a few different vantage points if the water is low. When the water is high the water will flow over the whole rock face, when it is lower you will see there is a split in the waterfalls which provides a nice scene. Enjoy and thanks for sharing!
