Who would believe that a 77 foot high waterfall calls itself home within the industrial city of Paterson, NJ? When visiting this majestic waterfall, you can almost imagine that you are in some remote state park for all the beauty it affords. The Parking lot is across from the falls with picnic tables and some grass. There is an access bridge and walkway that takes you right near the falls, where you can enjoy it from up close.
Note: Bridge across the chasm is closed until further notice. Falls observation deck at MEK is accessed by driving or walking across the Wayne Avenue Bridge, and making a right on Maple Street to MEK entrance. There is a small parking lot at Hinchliffe Stadium.
