This trail provides spectacular views of the white water of Falls Creek. The delicate 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.
