A relatively small, narrow chute through mounds of conglomerate rock, Sandstone Falls is one of the smaller drops along the Black River. Several mounded drops downstream add some height to the dark waters.

Directions

Head north from US-2 out of Bessemer onto Black River Road via N Moore Road. This route is also known as County Road 513 and should be well marked. Continue on Black River Road for 14.4 miles and park at the parking area. This is the second-to-last riverside parking area south of the harbor, if you'd rather visit the mouth of the river first. Follow the trail down to the waterfall.
