Anderson Creek pours out of a massive,
extremely narrow canyon and drops about 15'. I'm convinced there is a much
better falls upstream but I can't get a view of it. I've tried coming in
from the bottom and from the top with no view. I have a couple more tricks
up my sleeve so keep your fingers crossed for some sort of view of the main
falls in the future. The good news is that Middle Anderson Creek Falls is
not horribly difficult to get to and is a great waterfall. There is also a
large upper falls on the creek is
tough to reach as well.
- Turn off Baker Lake Road onto FR 1106 which goes over the top of the dam. Follow
the road up a few miles to the Baker Lake Trailhead. About a mile and a half along
the trail, you will encounter Anderson Creek (impossible to miss). The falls are
about 1/4 mile upstream. It's pretty tough to get to and not worth it
unless you can figure out how to get a view of the bigger falls upstream.
