waterfall appears to drop somewhere around 100' on Smith Creek. The
falls can be seen very distantly from just the right spot along the
Heliotrope Ridge Trail. Up close views appear to be very difficult to
attain to say the least. If a close view of the waterfall can be
found, the rating will go up substantially.
DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to Rock Gnome Falls. Smith
Creek Falls can be seen distantly about 1 mile down the trail near the first
long plank walkway. The view from there is barely worth it.
