During the summer, the
small stream which contains this waterfall is very small in volume but I've never seen it
run dry. When I visited the falls it was at about as high of a water level as it
ever gets and it was very impressive. The falls begins with a straight plunge
around 50' tall. Immediately below that is a segmented horsetail drop around 30'
tall followed by several smaller drops. In all the falls total just over 100' in
height. Getting a clear view of the falls is extremely tough and pictures are almost
impossible to get thanks to the vast amount of small trees and brush around the
creek. I named the falls after nearby Reveille Island.
|DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to Prospector Falls. Continue along the trail for another .5 miles to the small creek harboring the falls. The main drop of the falls can't be seen from the trail and a short bushwhack is required to view it. The easiest way is just to walk straight up the creek.|
