Better than just one, Concord Waterfall is actually a collection of three! Tucked away deep in the forest and mountains this is a less visited, albeit still popular site then some of the tourist falls. It is a beautiful an unique waterfall, and a rewarding visit, just be prepared for a hike if you wish to visit and get up close, otherwise you can view it from afar.

Creating a literal water-slide, the most famous of the three waterfalls of Concord slides down a sloped rock, shooting into the refreshing, blue pool below. This is a definitively mountain waterfall, as everything is rock, save a few ferns and moss. Do not be disappointed if you were hoping to see some trees and plants though, the pool itself is only a rock enclave, and is actually surrounded by a dense forest that requires traversing down some foot trails less traveled for a close look a the falls that can reach 65 feet at some places.
