With the rains over the weekend I was curious to see if Anglin Falls was flowing.Â I hadn’t been there in a couple of years and was looking for an excuse to go.Â Â It was not flowing as much as I had hoped but it was still very peaceful.
History of Anglin Falls
Dedicated Dec. 10, 1996, John B. Stephenson Memorial Forest State Nature Preserve in Rockcastle County protects a 123-acre wooded gorge with a rich spring floral display. The preserve honors John B. Stephenson, the former president of Berea College who enjoyed the area’s beauty and solitude and worked hard to preserve the forest surrounding Anglin Falls.
