Cavern Falls consists of 3 small drops. The first is a punchbowl about 6' tall in a very deeply recessed gorge that looks a bit like a cave, hence the name. This is followed immediately by a small 3' drop. The final drop is a very pretty little fan of about 8' tall. The top tier is very difficult to get a view of. It requires walking across a wet, slippery log that is less than a foot in diameter. It is also very difficult to view all three tiers in one spot .
