01° Ferne Clyffe Waterfall


Ferne Clyffe Waterfall, not to be confused with Bork’s Falls or Bork’s Cave which is sometimes also referred to as such, is a beautiful 100 foot waterfall located within Ferne Clyffe State Park, at the very end of Big Rocky Hollow Trail. Big Rocky Hollow Trail is a half-mile, moderately trafficked, out and back trail with many smaller falls to see along the way, especially in wet months. Ferne Clyffe Waterfall, unlike some of the spring-fed waterfalls of the SNF area varies from dry to only a tiny trickle in drier months, but really comes to life after a heavy rain, making Spring the ideal season to capture it in all its glory. While the waterfall itself is the main attraction, there are also impressive bluffs on each side of the trail on the hike in, and the creek runs alongside the trail, giving ample opportunity for gorgeous running water shots, or capturing the textures of the sandstone bluffs.
