The North Fork Sauk River makes another significant two tiered drop about 1/3 of a mile downstream of North Fork Sauk Falls.  As the river bends back to the west just out of view from the North Fork Sauk Falls it is once again forced through a narrow rock gorge.

As the river flows through the gorge it makes a thundering 15 foot drop then it will make one more a short distance downstream.

The water shoots out of the gorge casting a veil of spray as it makes its last 55' drop fanning out about as wide as it is high.
