You can get a partial view of Shohola Falls from the opposite side of Shohola Creek, but for my money this full-on downstream view is the most compelling.

  1. Hello! I am enjoying reading about the waterfall hikes on your page. Can you tell me how to get my hands on the maps you mention?

    Thanks,
    Renee

    • If you’re referring to the service I use to generate my maps, I have a subscription to on-x maps (onxmaps.com for info).

  2. At Raymond fall I went there and it was beautiful. Across the street from Raymond fall there is another one. I believe it is called hacker fall. Do you know any thing about it? Like how far it is and what kind of condition the trail is?

    • I know of it but have not personally visited it so I can’t give you an educated opinion of the condition of the trail. It’s smallish by comparison to the other falls in the area so I’ve never stopped off at it, always seem to have somewhere else to get to. Eventually I’ll shoot it on a future trip.
