Above Bennett Cove Falls, a trio of unique waterfalls are located at higher elevations, the first of which is accessed from a scramble path off the logging grade that leads upstream. The falls is a thirty foot high sliding rock that unfortunately has a hunk of deadfall cluttering the base. The forest around the site is very lush and with about an hour of chainsaw work to clear the obstructions, this would be a much prettier sight. For the full hike, refer to Upper Waterfall in Upper Bennett Cove.
