Big Rock Falls

Deep in the escarpment of the Mountain Pine Ridge, Big Rock Falls is another of the area’s waterfall treasures. After receiving good directions or the help of a guide, visitors embark on their expedition, either by horseback, mountain bike or vehicle to the hidden waterfall.

Big Rock Falls

Traveling in the same direction to Five Sisters Falls, keep a lookout for a feeder road off to the left that leads to a small clearing, followed by a trail downhill. The journey becomes a bit steeper as the trail descends down the escarpment.

Swimming in the pool

An easy climb over the granite boulders along the banks of the Privassion brings you to the base of the waterfall. The tremendous view of water rushing over the huge 150-ft rock formations and plummeting into the deep perfectly round pool at its base provides a rush of excitement.About ten to fifteen minutes later, the Privassion River comes into view and the sound of Big Rock Falls echoes through the valley.

A visit to this magnificent spot is one of the highlights of any trip to the mountain Pine Ridge area.
