Day Hiking

The maintained trail parallels the east side of Whychus Creek and ends at an overlook above the falls. The Cascades, another falls site, can be reached by continuing for 1/2 mile beyond the overlook. No trail exists between the Falls and the Cascades, but it is relatively easy to navigate the cross-country portion if you keep the creek in sight.
