Above Bennett Cove Falls, a trio of unique waterfalls are located at higher elevations, the second of which requires a short scramble off the left side of the logging grade that leads upstream. For the full hike, refer to Upper Waterfall in Upper Bennett Cove. The lowest drop is pictured below while several more drops can be reached by climbing the lower section on river right. A 4-6 foot drop and then a 15 foot slide are both hemmed in by rhodos but worth a peek for the adventurous type, which you would be if you’re this far into Bennett Cove.
