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.

along a former logging road. Cross over the west fork of Crystal Creek and continue until you reach the sign for
the James K. Carr Trailhead on the right.
