Description

To get to the waterfall, runners will need to start by climbing down a chain ladder that was put in back in the 1970s (if that doesn't appeal to you, continue along the Box Canyon Springs Service Road to still get some views and access a swimming area). Beneath the ladder, the singletrack picks its way steeply down to the water below. After briefly paralleling the flowing water, the trail ends beside a section of falls.

Very steep descent into the canyon. You need to be cautious as you drop precipitously down into the gorge. 0.2mi — 0h 05m
