Who doesn’t love a waterfall?!

Buttermilk Falls is tucked away in Stokes State Forest, not far from Tillman’s Ravine.  A one mile drive along a bumpy road will bring you to it’s bottom on the roadside.

For the ambitious and hearty, there is a huge staircase with several lookouts leading up to the top.  A great spot to visit anytime, but particularly special after a heavy rain when the gushing water turns a milky white, hence the name.

See links below for more waterfall exploration in and around NWNJ.
