This waterfall was featured in the film Deliverance. While plumb uses eight distnct forms, we wanted further granularity and opted to break down the hierarchy twofold: first based on the overall pitch of the waterfall, and then based on what shape the fall takes as it makes its descent. The vast majority of waterfalls featured on this website will technically be truly perennial waterfalls (those that flow all year long), but some may see their flow dwindle greatly in the late summer months.

Stretches of interstitial stream in between two or more distinct drops of a single waterfall are NOT considered to be distinct drops of the waterfall unless the section of stream in question would otherwise qualify as a waterfall were it to be isolated. Cell phone reception will be spotty at best and you should rely on a hand held GPSR for best results.

This page was last updated on November 24, 2019: Pools or stretches of level stream in between two or more successive drops of the falls will not factor in this figure. Like the Average Width measurement, this measurement will take into account the difference in width at the top and bottom of the waterfall as much as possible, but will often be made based on the width of the crest of th falls alone. © 2000-2020

This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published. 34.8174, -83.3043 Bull Sluice Falls is located on the Georgia and South Carolina border on the Chattooga River.

Groundspeak Terms of Use For example, Washington's Palouse Falls occurs along the Palouse River - which is a tributary to the Snake River, which is itself a tributary to the Columbia River, which ultimately enters the Pacific Ocean, so Palouse Falls would then fall within the Columbia River watershed.

Bull Sluice is the Official name of this waterfall. This is often the most difficult figure to pin down because accurately measuring streamflow is not a simple process. Volunteers for trail maintenance are always needed and … The Average Width of the waterfall represents the breadth of the waterfall from bank to bank under typical flow conditions, or if the waterfall has been Cataloged, under the conditions which it was most thoroughly surveyed.

From Westminster, it's a 17-mile drive to the Bull Sluice access trail.

Entries which specify a Flow Consistncy of 12 Months should in general have an acceptable flow at any time of year (but may be better during certain periods - see below). Dogs are also able to use this trail. Bull Sluice (GC4YPCE) was created by bigfatmeanie on 2/14/2014. Groundspeak, Inc. For more information on our waterfall form classifications, see the Help page.

Directions are not available at this time. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. Waterfalls with only one drop will have the total height of the waterfall repeated here. Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If known, the primary source of the watercourse which produces the waterfall will be listed here. Georgia County Challenge - A Work in Progress. The Total Height listed for the waterfall represents the difference in elevation from the top of the uppermost drop, to the bottom of the lowermost drop of the waterfall, including all stretches of interstitial stream in between. The Pitch of a waterfall is an estimated - often very roughly - measure of the average slope or steepness of a waterfall. Hidden If the watercourse is not known to have an officially or colloquially recognized name, this field is left blank. Stream between two tiers of a waterfall is counted in its overall height regardless of whether or not that section of the stream would be legitimately considered a waterfall on its own right, were it to be isolated. drop on the Chattooga River with whitewater in action. Waterfalls with a longer Run will usually either be less steep, often cascading type waterfalls, or will feature multiple steps separated by shorter stretches of a more gradual gradient streambed. Fun for watching rafters and kayakers drop over a class IV falls. This is helpful in determining whether a waterfall may flow more consistently during certain periods of the year - streams which originate in Springs, Lakes, or Glaciers will often flow more consistently throughout the year than those fueled by simply Runoff. Join now to view geocache location details. While we try to ensure this information is as accurate as possible, sometimes it will prove necessary to either estimate or flat out guess at certain characteristics where either enough information isn't readily available, is not known, or we were not able to confirm a given trait upon surveying. : No additional waterfalls were found within 5 miles. Waterfalls with only one drop will of have the height of only the single drop listed here.
