Bluffs of Beaver Bend: A Scenic Feature of Martin County (GM-04)
Bluffs of Beaver Bend (also "Gomerly's Bluff") were frequented by early Indiana and have attracted local residents, many of whom used the crystal-clear water from nearby Scout Spring, since pioneer days. From this spring at the base of a massive cliff, the bluffs continue northward for more than a mile along the White River.
The ridge is woods, but there are a few promontories about 100 feet above the river. The view to the east is spectacular, the buildings in Shoals standing out in relief against a backdrop of distant hills. The view to the north reveals the tree-lined river adjoining farmed bottomland with high hills beyond.
