This is a falls that was down a small path in the water that first required the limbo in your kayak under a downed tree. Then you had to abandon ship in waist deep water. Then you had to rock scramble criss crossing the creek through stinging nettles and a forest of posion ivy and an almost swim in chest deep water to make it to the base of this falls. Then 2 of us climbed up to this vantage point to get a view of the falls and the upper part as well by scalling up the loose rocks that had fallen from the rock ledge that was now above your head 50' or so. Worth ever bit of that to see them. Truly a hidden falls that not many have laid eyes on. I simply decided to label/name them Newfoundland Falls for the unnammed creek that starts just north in the blink of an eye town of Newfoundland, KY. This falls is located in quite a large gorge of its own. They measure a 9' drop on top to a 4' drop and then a 42' drop for the main falls.
In the end I ended up with a gash on my elbow and scrapped up my leg pretty good when it got caught in a slipping rock. Stinging nettle went away after an hour (must not affect me really), and by a miracle from God I got no poison ivy after crawling through it on my hands and knees to get up an embankment.
