    I took a short hike to South Mountain Reservation in NJ. It's a local spot. It was so cool I went back and got my daughters and some friends. They seemed to really enjoy it.

    That's a decent looking falls...I couldn't gauge it's size from the photo...any idea how big it is?
    (50'...100'...500', etc)

    The portion in the photo is about 11 feet tall. The total waterfall is about 25 ft. Some photo trickery. It's slow moving and not too pretty. I basically framed the most interesting part, and since it rained overnight the flow was just right for long exposure and streaks in the pool.

    Thanks all. It is a nice location and a fun hike. I have lived here for 9 years and this place is a 5 minute drive from me, yet i never knew it was there until 2 weeks ago. I searched the internet for nearby waterfalls and it showed up. lol. I guess I need to check out my town more.
