This is reportedly the highest waterfall in the park. The actual falls is about 75 feet high. The box canyon is also impressive. This is a hidden treasure of Mammoth Cave National Park. There is not a trail to the falls and since the ice storm of January 27, 2009, it is even more difficult to access. I wish there had been more water going over the falls. The drainage basin is small so I suspect the stream only flows in the winter/spring. That is a large of ice at the bottom. I put myself in this one for scale.
