The trail ascends steadily uphill through a ravine. Stay on the main trail

and avoid the old logging spurs to the right and left. The trail will level out and you will arrive at a picnic area;

horses and bicycles should be left here. The trail parallels the creek for .25 mile until it reaches the base of the

falls. Look to the left for the stone stairs leading up the cliff. Use the metal handrails for safety as you climb to the

two vista points.

Directions:

Creek Road and drive for 3.5 miles until you reach the gravel parking lot on the left. Take Mill Creek Trail downhill

the James K. Carr Trailhead on the right.
