Anderson Falls

Indiana Natural Areas: Bartholomew County

Anderson Falls is a 14-foot drop where the bed of Fall Fork transitions from a harder to a softer kind of rock. Two loop trails, one inside the other and sketched below, explore the wooded uplands on the streamís far side. To reach the other side Iíve had to wade across the creek, well above the falls, and only when the water is shallow. If itís high or running fast, save crossing for another day. Absolutely nothing on the other side of the creek is worth a trip over the falls. Though not prominently marked, the trails closely approach the stream bank near the falls. Markers along the trails identify the various plants found along their tread. Most visitors stick to the area around the falls, so if you venture onto the trails, youíre not likely to have much company.
