Lower Big

Lower Big

This is the next to last falls in the run in Lick Brook Gorge. It is pretty good sized, and when we have flooding it is quite impressive. The gorge itself is quite hidden, and requires a bit of hiking to get into. It is dangerous if you are not careful there, it contains a lot of loose shale cliffs. But it is an impressive gorge. In the winter at the big falls the Cornell ice climbers climb the frozen waterfall. It is the second highest waterfall on the eastern seaboard, second only to Taughannock Falls. My son is standing in front of the small falls for perspective.
