|This waterfall occurs on a stream that begins on Grouse Ridge, near the headwaters of Clearwater Creek. The falls begin with a 10' drop which is followed just downstream by a 30' curtain of water pictured on the left. From there, the creek continues in a tall, steep horsetail, spreading out to 25-30' wide. Unfortunately, from where I was on my first trip in, I couldn't see this main section very well and I could find no way down there. Plans are already in the works for a trip to the bottom so stayed tuned for that. The overall height of this waterfall is probably closer to 200' tall, but I'm waiting until I see it all before posting too big of a number.|
DIRECTIONS - I'm going to leave the directions blank for now. Once I
get to the bottom of the main drop, I'll post directions to there.
