This waterfall is some 25 – 30 m tall. The block of gneiss divides falls into two parts, where the eastern part is much smaller than the western one.
The main – western part of falls – is fan-shaped. Stream of St. John River here is some 20 – 25 m wide but after the falls it is up to 120 m wide.
Above the falls are located several more impressive rapids.
To the south is located locally famous site – Gbedin Rice Station. Here in the 1950s – 1960s was an ongoing experiment for growing swamp rice. The experiment was only partly successful.
