Photograph Screw Auger Falls

Rate this Adventure 0.2 miles 6 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Danielle Tourigny

Right off of Route 26, these falls are beautiful and provide several different vantage point for some photography!

After parking in the allotted parking area at screw auger, make your way down to the falls to explore! There are several "smaller waterfalls" that the river flows over before making its way to the 27 foot main attraction. Going in April, the falls were at their most powerful. It made taking pictures a little difficult because I was being nailed with water the whole time, but it was also incredibly beautiful! The falls then make their way through a large gorge and the scene is quite magical. Definitely want to be getting back at sunrise or sunset to try out some different lighting. There is an easily accessible trail that makes its way around the falls to provide several different angles.
