Waterfall Creek #555


The Waterfall Creek Trail #555 begins at an intersection with the Doubletop Trail #405 and ends at an intersection with the Cement Creek Trail #612. Typically this trail is travel in the downhill direction due to its steepness at times. It descends through dense stands of dark timber, crossing a creek twice as it makes its way to the end at the Cement Creek Trail. This trail can be rough and rutted, so downhill seems to be the preferred direction to hike or bike.
