Kittel Falls

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

Location: SE 1/4, NE 1/4, Sec 32, T 23N R21E

Kittel Falls is on private land just north of County G on the north side of Scray's Hill.

A view of the gorge as seen from the road.
The falls exposes about 2 meters of Silurian dolomite, a meter or so of oolitic Neda Iron Formation (reddish) and the bluish-gray Maquoketa Formation. This is the best exposure of the Neda Formation in the Green Bay area.

On the sides of the gorge, ground water seeping through the rocks has deposited porous tufa, probably from coating the moss that grows there.

Below are two views taken from further down-gorge.
