This trail features several small waterfalls along Covel Creek and small caves carved out of the rocky cliff. During cold winter spells this is a great trail to view icicles at the falls and along the cliffs. When temperatures begin to warm use caution as the ice begins to thaw.

The Covel Creek Falls Trail #228A climbs steadily along Covel Creek, then circles around the base of a cliff until it joins with Burley Mountain Trail #256. The trail was built by volunteers and can be hiked year round.

This trail is accessed by Covel Creek Trail #228.
