Downing Creek Falls (Autumn 2017)

**This waterfalls does not have an established or maintained trail. It has been written up a few times but is not frequently visited. In order to help keep this place as pristine as possible we are not openly posting driving or hiking directions. Send us an email and we’d be happy to give you tips on finding this beautiful area.


The hike for this waterfall is short, on old roads with downed trees and through overgrown boot paths. It features a very pretty creek, a stunning waterfall, and an overabundance of moss. The moss is seriously great though, it really gives you that storybook feel.


The elevation at the waterfall is over 3,000 feet and we did run into some light snow on the old road but not much around the waterfall itself. We’d imagine that this place can get some decent snow during winter.


We really urge that anyone who visits here hikes responsibly and helps keep this place looking as untouched as possible 🙂
