Scotchman Falls
   Nevada County, California, United States

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Apparently access to this waterfall is restricted, but since it appears to lie on National Forest land the reasons for this are curious (most likely that it is the local water supply or that there are private inholdings near the falls).
