Fun Facts:

Salmon Creek pours over a hard limestone cap to form beautiful Ludlowville Falls. The soft shale underneath has eroded away, creating an overhang cave and deep plunge pool. This fall powered the early settlement of Ludlowville, named for the pioneer family that built a gristmill here in 1795.

Trail Info

View falls from Ludlowville Park or explore the crest and plunge pool from trails at the ends of the fence. 1/10 mile Easy trail.
