Indiana Waterfalls With Stunning Fall Foliage Backdrop are a Must See On Your Next Autumn Getaway
The Hoosier state truly is a beautiful place.
Beautiful Hoosier State
Indiana gets a lot of flack online for being a state that's full of corn and race cars, and while we do have a lot of corn and a huge racing history in the state, Indiana also is home to some seriously beautiful views. The fall foliage in Indiana is truly a sight to behold. Not to mention Indiana is home to many historical covered bridges, and plenty of beautiful state parks. Indiana is full of beautiful hidden gems, quite like this one, Cataract Falls.
Indiana Nature Lovers Unite
I first heard of Cataract Falls thanks to the Indiana Nature Lovers Facebook group (this group is a wealth of Indiana information if you're looking for beautiful sights throughout the state). In the group, Nicole Finton shared her recent visit to the beautiful Cataract Falls, and the photos Nicole took were nothing short of stunning.
Until Nicole's post, I had not heard of Cataract Falls before, but thanks to Nicole's post I'm adding Cataract Falls to my Indiana must-see list! According to Indiana DNR Cataract Falls are located on Cagles Mill Lake.
In 1952, Cagles Mill Lake was built as Indiana’s first flood control reservoir, protecting the Eel and White river watersheds. Mill Creek feeds the 1,400-acre lake and is home to beautiful Cataract Falls. These falls resulted from two pre-glacial bedrock ridges buried beneath ancient lake sediments of the Illinoisan glacial period.
If you'd like to visit Cataract Falls, the address per Indiana DNR is 2605 N. Cataract Road, Spencer, IN, 47460. When I searched it on Google Maps, it's about a 2-hour drive from Evansville, so perfect for a day trip!
Check out more stunning photos from Cataract Falls below, and a huge thank you again to Nicole Finton for allowing me to share your images!
