In 2018, we started tracking weekly waterfall changes during Waterfall Season. This year, we decided to bring back #WaterfallWednesday for the 2019 Waterfall Season. Similar to peak fall colors, the exact peak of waterfall flowage can be difficult to predict. However, the lake and rivers break-up every spring after several days of warm weather and can last at peak flow for several weeks. We're checking in at some of our favorite waterfalls this spring to check-in on their spring breakup status. 

Liking what you see? Make a weekend (or a week) out of it! Find great lodging deals and more
