„Autumn Below the Hidden Waterfall“

from the gallery of Gene Walls

On a previous hike through Ricketts Glen, I photographed this small natural spillway and called it “Hidden Waterfall”. It does not appear on any maps.

Often, especially during dry summers, this stream offers barely a trickle. It is a small feeder tributary of Kitchen Creek. This small stream runs from the Old Beaver Dam to the Ganoga branch of Kitchen Creek, just below Mohican Falls in Ricketts Glen State Park, USA.

The falls are very easily missed ...hidden behind huge fallen trees, with lots of thick undergrowth surrounding the area. This spot can be found just off of the Ganoga Glen trail, a short distance upstream from Conestoga Falls. Heavy October rains had raised the water levels here, making this “secret” site a wonderful place to find. If I had a say in the matter, I would make this the 23rd named waterfall in the glen!
