Kathryn Falls is a small waterfall located in the upper stretches of Sulphur Creek. The waterfall begins with a pretty set of bedrock cascades. The creek then slides into a ramp and launches itself over the main portion of the falls, a 20' tall free fall. The entire waterfall stands at 33' tall. The area around the waterfall is absolutely full of wildflowers. I named the waterfall after my Grandma Kay, who passed away a few days before I found the falls.
DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to Squak
Glacier Falls. Continue along the Scott Paul Trail which will
re-enter the woods for a short time before emerging into a stunning display
of boulders and flowers. About 3/4 of a mile past the meadow where
Squak Glacier Falls is seen, the trail crosses Sulphur Creek just above
Kathryn Falls. Rock hop down the east side of the creek for a good
view of the falls.
