|There are a lot of really pretty, small waterfalls, but this one may just take the cake. Located along the closed Fragrance Lake Road, this tiny stream drops over a 15' plunge before cascading down another 10'. Especially in the autumn with the leaves all around, the variety of colors around the falls really make it stand out from all the other little falls around. The road continues up to Fragrance Lake and a beautiful observation point looking out over the San Juan's. From there you can travel to other lakes in the area including the very nice Lost Lake complete with its own falls. This same stream later goes over Clayton Beach Falls.|
|DIRECTIONS - Take
I-5 to exit 231 and follow HWY 11 out to the Clayton Beach Trailhead. Walk up
Fragrance Lake Road for about 1.5 miles to where the falls crash down right next to the
road, which is closed to motor vehicles.
