Autumn at Cataract Falls

Cataract Falls is a favorite destination in Owen County, Indiana. There are two sets of waterfalls on Mill Creek. The upper falls are slightly taller than the lower.

Autumn is a great time to visit the falls, not only for the colors, but water flow is low enough to walk under the falls and get a close-up look of the interesting rock bed that make up the creek bottom. Visit the falls after a good rain to watch an impressive flow of water tumble over the falls. In the winter the falls sometimes freeze and form a unique stationary frozen waterfall.
