Description

The gradual grade of this 9-mile trail slowly climbs away from Falls Creek and crosses 2 creeks before reaching the waterfall in approximately 2.5 miles. Falls Creek surges over rocks and timber cascading from a height of 100 feet, creating a gentle mist below.

Approximately 3 miles from the trailhead a large clear pool about 50 feet wide and 10 feet deep, provides a lovely picnic spot. Elk, beaver and otter await the forest visitor.
The trail continues on for 6.5 miles, crossing several forest roads, and terminates at Falls Creek Horse Camp on Forest Road 65.

The vistas on the Falls Creek Trail were great, with views of Hood and a great quick view of St  Helens.

The trail opens up with nice little optional rolling jumps and drops.

This bridge is almost at the end, assuming you're not crazy and decided to ride this as an  out-and-back.
