Gunaldo Falls is a minor waterfall located along a tributary of small Sourgrass Creek along the Three Rivers Highway near the small town of Dolph. The unnamed creek flows down a twisting gully fanning out at the end of its descent, totalling about 40 feet in height. The falls are barely recognizable even in the winter and even when they are, it certainly isn't something worth visiting unless you happen to be a die hard waterfall hunter. On top of that, the Sourgrass Creek ravine has been relegated to a dumping ground - with beer cans, tires, glass, food wrappers and pretty much any other object seen in a landfill littering the side of the hill. People, there are places specifically to throw your junk away. Just because landfills are located on the earth doesn't make the whole earth a landfill. Best to just leave this one alone.
- Gunaldo Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
Gunaldo Falls was apparently well known when a county road was constructed between 1915 and 1919. The name of the falls is said to stem from the amalgamation of the first two letters of three locals of influence at the time - county commissioners William Gunning and W.S. Allan and county judge J. B. Dodson.
Gunaldo Falls is located adjacent to Highway 22, 12 Â¼ miles southeast of Hebo, or 1 Â¼ mile east of Dolph Junction. A long, wide pullout on the north side of the road and a gravel road heading south on the opposite side of the highway marks the falls. Getting close to the falls requires a short, steep scramble down to Sourgrass Creek, then a brushy scramble about 100 feet upstream. Be cautious where you walk, there is literally mounds of trash - rusty metal and glass and such - that could inflict serious injury along the slopes below the highway.
