Waterfalls & leaf peeping
Trip Report/Photos from BillyB1976
The primary reason for this trip was to go to Red River Falls, but I also wanted to do some leaf peeping. The fall foliage is high right now and I wanted to get out to see the fall colors in case I don't have an opportunity to go out again.
Red River Falls is a series of short drops over a distance of about 1/2 mile. I've been to the falls before when the water was higher, but it was still nice on this trip.
It does not appear that many people visit these falls, even though a road runs parallel to the stream. There is at least one spot along the road where you can see the stream. But there are no established trails, and I didn't even see any random trails leading to the falls.
I spent 1 hour 50 min. exploring the falls, way more than I thought I would. I took plenty of pictures, and the footing is also tricky/slippery in spots. When I got to the last waterfall I simply walked through the woods for a few feet and followed the road back to my parking spot. I walked about 1 mile total.
I explored some roads before and after visiting the falls, and took some pictures of the fall foliage. I wanted to spend more time leaf peeping along the roads, but because I spent so much time at the waterfalls, I was running out of daylight.
I drove 135 miles on this trip, with 62 miles of that on woods roads.
It is hunting season, but road traffic was light. I had the waterfalls all to myself.
