Trail shared by Steve Jackson

Amazing waterfall with easy access.

Features River/Creek · Views · Waterfall

Overview

There are multiple waterfalls on Panther Creek; two are spring-fed and one is on the main creek. This is a short run that anyone can do.

Description

The parking lot is on the south side of Forest Road 65 and it's not marked. The beginning of the trail is also unmarked so you'll have to hunt for it on the north side of the road about 100 feet west of the parking lot.

The run is a very short but moderately steep downhill to the viewing platform. At the platform, you'll see the main creek falls and two spring fed falls along the side. Enjoy!

Flora & Fauna

There are American Pika on the rockfall at the parking lot. Be patient and quiet and you'll see them.
