Big Wilson

Big Wilson Bridge

DESCRIPTION: This is a riverine falls over a series of ledges, with a main drop of approximately ten feet. The total drop is about 20 feet. There is a good water volume year round. A large, deep pool located below the main drop, on the west side of the falls, is suitable for swimming, including older children. The adjacent mixed hardwoods make this a scenic location, especially during the Fall color season.
