Meditation Falls is the last of the tributary waterfalls that can be seen from the Boulder River Trail.  The falls occur where a small stream horsetails about 60' directly into the river in a beautiful, curtain of water.  The falls marks a great turn-around spot for day hikers and the boulder across from the waterfall is a great place to relax and have a little lunch.  While it's not a big waterfall, this is a beautiful spot along an amazing trail.

DIRECTIONS - Drive east of Arlington on HWY 530 for 19 miles to French Creek Road.  Follow the pothole filled road for about 4 miles to the trailhead.  The falls are located about 2.5 miles along the trail and can be seen clearly from the trail.  A short scramble down towards the river leads to a great view atop a large boulder.
