Meece Shoals, located on Twelvemile River is named for the old gristmill that used to be in operation called Meece Mill. The water forming the shoals comes from a concrete dam which used to power the old watermill. Now the mill is a restraunt and serves lunch on the third Saturday of every month.
The mill and the shoals are both visible from the parking lot so no hiking is involved.
