Not too far from Susan Creek Falls is Fall Creek Falls, our second waterfall of the morning. We wonder who comes up with these names… Why not Stumble Creek Falls, Trip Creek Falls or Eat Shit Creek Falls? 

Crossing the bridge from the parking lot, you’ll see the trail sign straight ahead; the trail to the falls will be to the left and a flushing toilet to the right. So take advantage while you can ;P

We read that Fall Creek Falls was similar to Susan Creek Falls but better. Since we were not disappointed by Susan Creek Falls, like others have been, we couldn’t wait to see what it looked like.

The trail has boulders and cliffs set off to the side, allowing a clear path, but be careful not to hit your head. There is a tight squeeze.

The narrow path doesn’t last long. Pretty soon, we were on a lush open trail.

Not much farther and we reached our stop. We could easily walk right up to this waterfall.

There isn’t a pool where you can swim in like Susan Creek Falls, but the view of the tiered waterfalls was beautiful. The hike to Fall Creek Falls was more interesting than Susan Creek Falls. Waterfall-wise, we couldn’t really decide which was better…

You could hike farther up to check out the upper levels of the waterfall but we decided to head out. Watson Falls was next on our list! Until next time, Fall Creek Falls.


@HikeSnobs Tips:

  • Watch your head.
  • The toilet here flushes! If you hate pit toilets or porta-potties like HikeSnobs do.
