Description

Triple Falls Trail can be found at a trail junction at the 1.05 mile mark of Alec Canyon Trail.

From Alec Canyon Trail, Triple Falls Trail continues heading upstream into a deep forested creek valley. The trail runs along the creek, crossing it twice. As the trail nears the falls, it becomes rockier, with some fallen logs and other small obstacles. However, Triple Falls is soon seen, making the journey up this short spur to this hidden waterfall quite worthwhile.

Flora & Fauna

Ferns, moss, fallen logs, rocks, and other dense creekside vegetation can be found here.
