Webber Falls is a fantastic waterfall located in a deep canyon near Jackman Creek Road.  The falls begin with a 70' tall plunging drop.  Immediately the creek spreads out to about 50' wide and cascades for another 40 vertical feet.  When the volume is lower, it should be possible to scramble up the cascades and get closer to the base.  On my first trip into the falls, there was so much water that this wasn't possible and even if it was, there was so much spray coming off the falls that photography would have been impossible.  As you can see above, the cascades in the foreground with the plunging drop behind make for a really cool scene.  Given better conditions, this has the potential to be one of the prettiest waterfalls around.  The trip to Webber Falls is very difficult, but if you can make it, it's worth the trouble.

DIRECTIONS - Take HWY 20 to Concrete and stay on it for another mile or so.  Eventually you'll see Jackman Creek Road heading off to the left (be ready - it's easy to miss).  Stay on this road for around 6 miles.  The first major creek you cross is Webber Creek.  Continue along the road for a short distance and take a second dirt road to the right.  Follow it uphill and park at the next junction (the road is a little rough).  Follow the right fork until it ends.  From here you are about 1/2 a mile from the falls.  Head towards the creek (south) and upstream.  From the end of the road you are at just about the same elevation as the waterfall so try to stay at this elevation as much as possible.  It's not easy though.
