“A great run to a reservoir and a waterfall with stunning views and easy access.”— Chris Seiple
You'll follow a dirt road around the left of the reservoir for about 0.2 miles before turning left, back onto the Bells Canyon Trail (it's well-marked). Another half-mile and you'll be at a nice creek crossing with a wooden bridge and crystal clear mountain water. This is a great place to stop for a rest.
Continue on the trail into National Forest land for about a mile until you reach a trail junction at a large fir tree. It's not marked, but there is a well-worn trail that deviates to the left -- this is the side trail to the lower waterfall. Be careful here, as it's quite steep as you approach the falls, but it's definitely worth it. If you want to picnic, there's a great spot on some exposed rocks just below the falls.
