Falls Creek Falls is a beautiful, yet powerful waterfall located deep in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. It has three tiers, first dropping 60 feet over a wide ledge, then spreading out and veiling over a 90 foot cliff, and finally it gathers then thunders another 70 feet into a huge bowl. The final two tiers can be seen from the lower trail. This hike adds the upper trail, giving you additional perspective on this magnificent waterfall.
Beautiful 200 foot, three-tiered waterfall in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We will hike the upper trail to a viewpoint overlooking the valley and then descend to the base of the falls. We’ll return by way of the lower trail which traces the creek through old growth forest. 6 miles / 1100 feet.
