Indian Runs Falls is about half the height of Hayden Falls and all of the park trails stick to the top of the gorge. Close to where a bridge crosses over the creek, there are several small waterfalls and pools. The gorge walls are steep and the day I was there, covered in ice and snow. To see the main falls from the bottom required climbing down near the end of the gorge and hiking back upstream to the falls.
Because the falls face north east, in the winter they are always back lit. The waterfall flows over an undercut cliff so when they’re frozen there’s a large passage that runs the entire width of the falls. The sun was behind the cliff, but high; all the light coming through the ice is reflected off the frozen pool in front.
