Hike Directions: You’re going to have to hike the Upper Whitewater River downstream from the upper access off Heady Mountain Road. This is the first waterfall downstream of the river crossing. This falls is where the Whitewater River enters the slot canyon. It is hard to get a good vantage and as best I could tell there was no way to get to the base without a rope and harness. To get to the vantage for the first four shots you have to walk the edge of the river along the sloping rock. One misstep and you’re going down the falls into the slot canyon. It’s going to be a painful, bumpy ride with lots of broken bones and possibly ending with drowning in the roiling waters below. Be careful getting to and moving around the overlook. It’s both beautiful and dangerous.
