As you walk forward a little way, you begin to see the pool of crystal clear water far beneath the cliffs. When you walk to the right a few hundred feet, you begin to hear the falls at the merging of Onion and Williamson Creeks
For much of the walking trail along the creek, the falls is still visible. You can also walk 'around' the top of the falls' if you have a steady gait and are a good jumper! There is a gravel peninsula that juts out into the pool that is easily accessible. It is a great way to get a little closer to the cascade and its glorious song.

Due to the time of year, the visitor count was minimal; less than a dozen during the hour I was there. I love those times. It is exciting for me to see people enjoying the beauty of nature on a warm clear day, but it is equally as delightful to be alone with my thoughts. It was quiet enough for me to be inspired to write a little poem describing what I was witnessing.
Banging and bumping without any bruises
Riding for miles along the rocky floor
Faster and faster the liquid glass cruises
Over the cliff as it found an open door
|A kind of cave|
|From the top of the falls|
|Awesome limestone formations|
|Down the hiking trail beyond the waterfall|
