DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to
Lower Austin Creek Falls. From the pullout, find a trail heading
off directly opposite the road. The trail is in pretty decent shape
for a little while until you come to a collapsed wooden staircase.
Shortly after this the trail seems to end but if you look closely you can
see a path head steeply uphill away from the creek. Continue upstream,
following the obscure paths where you can. Shortly after the trail
runs out you will pass Lower Trataka Falls.
Austin Creek Falls is about 800' upstream from here but it's a tough go.
Once you get there, the best view is from a narrow ridge directly above the
NEARBY WATERFALLS - Lookout Falls, Lower Austin Creek Falls, Lower Trataka Falls, Prospector Falls, Reveille Falls, Trataka Falls, Tyler Falls, Wildwood Cascades
