Trail shared by Jim Jones

A short trail to a beautiful waterfall.

Features Waterfall

The road closes once its snowy.

Description

This trail is listed as moderate because you'll likely be drawn to scramble up and over large boulders to get a better view of the falls; please be careful if you chose to go off the path and do this.

The trail starts from a parking area on the north side of Trail Creek Road just before the big descent into Sun Valley. The trail is just a old jeep trail for the first 200 yards then narrows down to a singletrack that is covered with roots and large rocks. Despite the more technical trail, this is a kid friendly run. The falls are just big enough to get into and not too tall for the water to hurt when it hits you; however, the water is a bit on the colder side.
