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 GPS map is wrong on this trail. There is a wrong turn somewhere around mile 4-5 from the bottom. If you riding up from the bottom (out and back) about mile 4ish? there is a T in the trail, the trail goes left, but the Map shows right. Right is an easy(r) way to ride up since its a fire road. The real trail is left. Riding down the trail is well marked so so its not an issue. Jun 27, 2017
