Photographer's Note

The uppermost waterfall on the Plotter Kill is about 60 feet high. Higher cliffs surround the falls on both sides. There is a side trail that goes to the top of the falls, and a very rough one to its base. The falls definitely looks the best from the base, but it is very difficult to get there. The ground is very loose, eroded, and gravelly. If you attempt to go to the base, be careful, plan on getting dirty, and keep in mind that the return trip up won't be any easier.

The lower waterfall on the Plotter Kill is maybe slightly less high than the upper, perhaps 50 feet. It has a very similar appearence, with the addition of a little shelf cascade at the bottom of the falls. The picture on this page is of this falls.

The easiest way to get to the lower falls from the base of the upper falls is to follow right along side the stream. Usually, the water is low enough so that this is not a problem. However, it is again difficult to go down to the base, and to climb back up. Keep this in mind.

I have not yet visited the third waterfall, or much of the rest of the Preserve. As soon as I do, this page will be updated with more information.

Both falls are surprisingly beautiful, unexpected in this area. Since the Preserve is so close to a populated area, expect to see garbage and grafitti on the rocks. This is not so bad as to spoil the experience, however. Finally, try to visit in the spring, or right after a thunderstorm, as the Plotter Kill does not usually hold a significant amount of water.
