|Davis Creek near Glacier is chock full of waterfalls. There are at least four major waterfalls on the creek. Thus far we have visited three of them. The lowermost waterfall on the creek occurs just downstream from Coal Creek Road, but is pretty tough to get a clear view of. The falls consists of 4 back-to-back sliding drops totaling about 65' in height. This is followed by a final drop of about 10'. It may be possible to get a partial view of the falls from the top of the ridge on the east side of the canyon. This should be much easier than climbing to the bottom of the little canyon. There are some pretty little cascades above the falls that could probably be added to the height but it seems a little unnecessary.|
DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to
Middle Davis Creek Falls. Walk back down the road a few hundred
feet to the previous corner and then head downstream along the top of the
ridge. The safe route would be to continue following the ridge until
you reach the creek and then head upstream. I left the ridge and
climbed very steeply down the edge of the canyon to the base so that's a
possibility (although not advised).
