Overview

Check out a great waterfall only a short distance from the parking area near Brundage Mountain. This run is perfect for the whole family—bring a lunch and make a day of it.

Description

From downtown McCall, Idaho, drive 5.6 miles NW on Hwy 55 to the Brundage Mountain Ski Area turnoff. Turn right (north) onto Brundage Mountain Road and continue up for 3.4 miles to park at the Gordon Titus (snowmobile) parking lot. This parking lot is on the left about a mile before the ski area parking lot. Head for the dirt road at the north end of the parking lot. The trail will turn off to the left just as you start up this dirt road. The trail isn't initially marked very well so be on the lookout.

Descend the occasionally steep trail to the river, cross a bridge, and then backtrack to the falls. Signs will guide your way there. Once you near the falls, there are a couple of loose scrambles down to the river to view the falls. The trail is frequented by families and is well maintained.

Note, however, that the last portion down to the falls and river needs to be taken with care due to the loose rocks/dirt.
