Warm Springs Trail #1499

Area Status: Temporarily Closed
This area is Closed

The 0.3-mile trail winds through a dense canopy of Douglas-fir and lodgepole pine. The trail leads to an opening above a canyon formed from basalt cliffs. Warm Springs Falls pours over columns of basalt thundering to the creek bed over 70 feet below. The columnar basalt framing the falls is an added bonus to the beauty of the waterfall.

The trail takes on a special beauty in the spring when rhododendrons are in bloom.
