Thanks Kyle. Interesting. I think that in this case, I'd just "let sleeping dogs lie" if there are no posted signs.

Oak Tree Falls:Becoming the master of finding and taking falls pics with no water. BUT, from the erosion on the hike, tree debris build-up at points and the midstream vegetation stubbed out and now coming back, you can tell this gets some water in a good way.

Access? This is very easy. Take 89 to Wyers road. 200-300 feet from the bottom of Wyers (it sort of T intersects) along the woods you see a pull off. Then a path. It takes you nicely down to the creek at a point where two come together. Take the bigger one to the falls.

Pics? Two just below.Fairly open. Seemingly a good (open)shot on right side (facing the falls) about 100-150 feet back up 25+ feet. Rope would help. Didn't bother as no flowing water.

Groves Creek Falls. Yeah, no water again.This falls is sad in the sense that a former bridge or mill was just tossed into the falls and now is at the bottom. Old cement footings, metal pieces throughout

Access: Easy again. 89 to Wyers. At the intersection, park west, uphill on the road. Cross 89, follow car path just of Wyers at the intersection to the falls. Ends at 8 ft ccascade wall consumed by the bridge just above it.Crossed creek, south about 200 feet used a 100 ft rope to descend. With Water you might get something of a shot. I probably won't go back.

Pics: two at bottom

I still dont understand this land status. I drove by again yesterday and the whole road is posted as it was last year when I drove by (the gully sits just the other side of the signs down a steep embankment). So I didnt check it out...it definately had water though and I could hear the falls as I drove by further up the road.
