Trail #152A Falls Creek Falls


Area Status: Open

This Trail Open to Hiker and Bicycle Use.

This trail provides spectacular views of the white water of Falls Creek. The mist from the cascades of Falls Creek creates an excellent area to rest among a blanket of mosses.

The trail follows Falls Creek, climbing through a 30- to 60-year-old forest for about 1.5 miles. A cable suspension bridge spans a rock gorge providing spectacular views of the white water of Falls Creek. Continue uphill for 0.7 mile to the base of the waterfall. The trail ends at the waterfall. There is a creek crossing prior to the falls. This can be a difficult crossing during early season flows.

Falls Creek Trail #152 leaves 152A shortly after leaving the parking area. Falls Creek Trail #152 then parallels #152A for approx. 2 miles then continues for another 7 miles to Falls Creek Horse Camp. There is a connector trail, 152B that connects the two trails just before the falls.
