Waterfall Listing By County

       Below is a listing of waterfalls by county. This is not all the waterfalls that I know of, just the ones I wanted to include. Some waterfalls on the list are closed to access. They are listed to inform the public on the access status of the waterfall and will hopefully help the landowners protect their rights of controlling access to their waterfall. The information on this web site does not give anyone the right to trespass on private property. You must obtain permission to enter private property.

If you find any incorrect information please let me know about it.
Additions and corrections to this list are strongly encouraged.

       Below is the key to the colored squares. Clicking on a blue name will take you to information on that waterfall.

   - The waterfall is on private property and permission must be obtained.
        Or the waterfall is on private property and access is currently questionable.

   - The waterfall is on private property and is closed to access.
