I was hiking on Beauty Mountain Trail during the late winter and discovered a waterfall. I haven’t gotten down to the bottom of it yet, and I’m sure it’s pretty sensitive to dry weather, as the falls drop off a large boulder (shocker being the location). I got the best shot I could from the top, but be warned – I was right on the cliff edge to get this shot! I don’t have a lot of information on this waterfall, but it’s at least 35 feet tall. I plan to check this spot out after a heavy rain for more information and photos!

This waterfall is located right off of the Beauty Mountain trail. Drive onto Lansing-Edmund Road from US-19 in Fayette County and drive 2.5 miles out Lansing-Edmund Road to Beauty Mountain Road. You’ll drive out 1.4 miles on Beauty Mountain Road until you come across a sharp left. At this spot, there will be parking on the right. The trail starts here and the waterfall – when it has recently rained – is nearly audible from here! I plan on doing more investigating on this spot soon.
