Manakiki Falls

Water Source
Maple Creek
11 miles northeast of Bessemer
25 foot drop
Go north on Co. Rd. 513 from US-2 in Bessemer for about 13.5 miles (about 1/5 mile past the Potawatomi/Gorge Falls parking area) to a gravel road. Take the gravel road to the left (west) for about 3 miles to a bridge over Maple Creek. Cross the bridge, make a U turn, and park near the bridge.
Follow the west bank (right side) for about 1/4 mile upstream to the falls There is no clearly marked trail, but it is easy to follow the bank.
Other Information
It was hard to get a photo of the main falls. This photo is of a rush of water below the falls, taken from the bridge over Maple Creek. Upstream where the main falls are, the bank overhung the creek, so I couldn't get a clear view of the falls.
