Summary: Rainbow Falls is the reason to see the Horsepasture River, but you have to pass these falls to get there.

Turtleback Falls is one of the many falls on the Horsepasture River. See Rainbow Falls for details on how to find the falls. The falls are downstream (to the left) of where the trail meets the river. If you go to see Drift Falls first, just turn around and head downstream and you will find Turtleback falls.

This is a small waterfall. The locals use it as a waterslide.
