Nearest Intersection: Lowdale Rd and Lyonsdale Rd
Directions: From the intersection of Hwy 12 and Hwy 12d and McAlpine St, drive east on McAlpine St for .4 miles. Turn right onto Center St and drive .5 miles. (Note: at .3 miles Center St changes to Franklin St). Turn left onto Laura St and drive .8 miles bearing left onto Lyonsdale Rd. Continue on Lyonsdale Rd for 2.4 Miles. Turn left into the first parking area, which will be just pass the Burrows Paper Company on your left. I first parked in the burrows paper company parking lot and walked over behind the building. Then I went just past the building and parked in the upper parking lot and walked over to the walk bridge. From the parking area you will see a small foot bridge, that crosses over the river. At some point in time this use to be an actual road called Lyonsdale Rd. As you are standing on the bridge look upstream, well above the bridge and you can see the falls in the distance. Continue across the bridges and just past that to your right you will see a path and sign marking the trail. This trail will take you to both Double Drop Falls and Knifes Edge Falls
Comments/Notes: In this location there are 4 waterfalls, Lyonsdale Falls, T-Bone Falls, Double Drop Falls and Knifes Edge Falls. The first three can be seen right from the bridge.
