Points of Interest

1. Trailhead

This is where the Trailhead is. Parking can be difficult here since there is not may spots to park. As seen on the map you often has to park far from the Trailhead.

2. Junction

Make sure to take a right after crossing the bridge and stay following the bigger river.

3. Cascade Falls

This is the best park of the hike. You get to enjoy the waterfall that about 25ft fall. After a large rain fall this waterfall can get pretty big and during the summer can be pretty lame. The first two pictures were taken in December and the third in March.

4. Exploring the upper part of the creek

This is a good area for traveling up the creek bed. Though there is no trail up here is still fun for children or people that enjoy traveling up creek beds.
