About 800' upstream from Gilligan Creek Falls is this rather ugly upper falls. The falls consist of three tiers of about 15', 15', and 10' from top to bottom. The entire falls is choked with logs and branches. Add in the fact that it is very difficult to get a good view and it totals disappointment. However, if you are planning on visiting Paradise Falls you might as well grab this one too.
