Waterfall Wednesday: Little River Falls!

Located near the Little River Canyon Visitor Center off Highway 35, this stunning 45-foot waterfall marks the beginning of Little River Canyon.

The waterfall's flow varies with the seasons, offering high water levels in winter and early spring, perfect for expert kayakers. Summer and fall bring lower water levels, revealing a different but equally beautiful view. No matter the season, Little River Falls is a breathtaking destination!
