- waterfall at (37.83462, -122.54638):
the top taken 2011-03-06:
the lower part of the waterfall, seen from another cliff:
My estimate of the height is more suspicious than usual, because I can only see parts of it at one time from above. There is little hope of getting a better view from land, but it shouldn't be unusually hard to get a better view from the water.
Beauty: 8 (including beauty of the hike to the falls)
Duration: 2 days after a significant rainfall
Height 35 feet (broadly defined)
Height 30 feet
Biggest vertical drop 10 feet
Terrain: unofficial trail, some difficulties
route: From the Rodeo Beach Parking, follow one of the trails going west near the cliff tops almost to Tennessee Point. I don't recommend trying to get a good view of the top. Stick to viewing it from a moderately good trail that goes out toward a point atop a cliff 100 yards east.
