Clifty Falls is one of the most beautiful sites in Indiana, the falls sit atop the Clifty Canyon gorge that runs south into the Ohio River. Big Clifty is sixty feet and there are three other falls that top sixty feet as well. There are many other cascades and rivulets that grace the park making it an amazing place to visit after a hard rain.
The spring brings out an incredible display of wildflowers followed by fall colors that paint the canyon walls and hillsides with such a broad brush of color that many people leave the park with a sense amazement.

Spent a cold morning hiking to Little Clifty Falls in the Clifty Falls Sate Park near Madison Indiana. Most of the leafs have fallen and we finally received some substantial rainfall the night before so there was good flow in the water.
This has not been one of the better fall seasons for color or water flow for the many waterfalls that we have here in Jefferson County. But there was still enough fall scenes to salvage this season and find I did still find some very beautiful scenes to capture.
Little Clifty falls resides in Clifty Falls Park, the park boasts many smaller falls and cascades along Clifty creek. There are five big falls located in the park with Little Clifty being the smallest of the five.
I was hoping to catch high water flow surrounded by colorful fall leafs but the dry fall put a halt to that. But the park is still beautiful and any day walking the canyons and trails here makes it worth the visit.
Hope you enjoy the pics and if you are looking for a great place to visit in Southern Indiana try spending a day in Clifty Falls State Park.
It hasn’t been the best or worst fall I have witnessed but no matter how bad the colors are, Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana always puts on a show.
Even though the park is famous for it’s waterfalls every fall all of the beautiful hardwood trees that line the gorges of this special place put on a magical display of color that rarely disappoints.
Maple, Hickory, Popular and Oak are just a few of the many varieties of trees that change with the season. There are many wonderful trails that lead you in and out of the Clifty Canyon and give you a up close and personal view of the splendor of this special place.
And if hiking is not your thing the road thru the park gives you fabulous views of the canyon and of all the great trees as well.
But you better hurry if you want to view the colors because they are peaking now and won’t be around much longer !!
