Description:

Byman (Perow) Falls is a series of falls with spectacular views and great photography opportunities. The falls cascade off smooth rocks with large punch-bowl pools at the bottom. This is an all season destination as the Perow FSR is maintained in the winter, so get your snowshoes out! The pools also offer some much needed wading on a hot summer day. The rock walls and pool bottoms have been shaped over time and are smooth with embedded bits of quartz in places.

This is a nice short hike to take the kids on for a picnic. Use caution in areas above the falls as the rocks are slippery and very steep.
