Description

Trail #048C is a scenic trail from the top of the main falls that follows the top of a bluff line over to the east falls. There are numerous user-created trails along this path, but if you stay to the right and follow the bluffs, you'll reach the east falls. There's a small wooden bridge over the creek near its end, and the way down into the canyon is not far past the bridge.
