Indiana Waterfalls


Fall Creek Falls:

Trailhead GPS: 40.33830,-87.31657 (Fall Creek Gorge Nature Preserve Parking)
Waterfall GPS: 40.33860,-87.32064

Fall Creek Falls is a 10-foot waterfall on its namesake, a tributary of Big Pine Creek, in Warren County.  The waterfall is located in Fall Creek Gorge Nature Preserve, managed by the Nature Conservancy.  The hike to the falls is about a half-mile round trip and easy.

To visit the falls, head east from Williamsport on IN-28 for about 1.5 miles and turn left on US-41 north.  Drive 1.8 miles and turn right on the gravel Potholes Road.  Go 1.6 miles and the preserve will be on the left before crossing Big Pine Creek.  There is no street parking on Potholes Road and the parking ban is enforced.

From the parking area, pick up the trail that leads about 0.1 miles to Fall Creek Gorge.  Just after crossing a tributary, the trail heads up to the rim of the gorge and then down to creek level at the base of the falls.  It's not a big waterfall, but I thought it was very scenic.

Williamsport Falls:

Williamsport Falls is a 90-foot waterfall on Fall Branch, a tributary of Wabash River, in Warren County.  The waterfall is in the middle of the town of Williamsport.  The overlook to view the falls is just a few feet from the parking, but its a steep climb down to the base.

To visit the falls, head west from Attica on US-41 for about a half-mile after crossing Wabash River and turn left on South River Road.  Drive just under 2 miles and turn right on East Monroe Street.  In 0.6 miles, about 0.1 miles before the railroad crossing, turn right onto the gravel drive and there is a small parking area at the end.  The overlook is just past the parking.  A gravel road continues down and I found a place to scramble down to creek level to make it to the base.
