Copperas Creek Falls

Copperas Creek Falls is a beautyfull water fall in the Red River Gorge it drops about 70 feet to a small pool surounded by rododendrons, unfortunatly the flow of water gets greatly diminished in the summer. Also this waterfall is some what hard to get to since there is no official trail leading to it. and the creek has to be crossed many times so I can imagine with a better water flow the creek would be up too and hard to cross. Also there is a lot of timber down laying over the trail from the big ice storm of January 2009.

Here I have Edgar Zhagui my photo adventure budy to give a scale of size.
