Waterfalls flowing?

Anyone know if there is water flowing at Groff Creek Falls ?

I can't imagine that Groff Creek is dry right now. With all the dry/hot weather, the stream flow should be low. We've been back in there during low water and you get to see rock formations that are normally covered with water (or ice).

Having said that, we're supposed to get some rain this afternoon, so maybe that will boost the water table. Let us know how it turns out.

Made it to the falls 2 weeks ago. Really nice. Anyone ever drop down right in the stream bed? I feel like I could get some good pics there. Might just need a little rope to help get back out.

Kinda steep getting down there, but worth it. Getting back up is a little sporty, but that's half the fun.

I'm not sure which fall this is, we kind of lost track after a while.

Groff Cr. has so many falls and cascades it's hard to keep them straight.

yes much to be explored. Plus we did not see one other person. I really like it back there. Should be fun in the snow too.
