Route Description for Fairy Creek Waterfall Trail
The hike up to the Fairy Creek Waterfall is an easy half-day hike that the whole family can enjoy. The route follows along some easy terrain through the forest and climbs gently uphill alongside the flowing waters of Fairy Creek. Once you reach the falls, you will have an awesome view of the water as it cascades over the edge of the rock. Make sure to take some time to explore the area around the falls to get a view from above and below the rushing water. If you can time your hike after the snow melts in the spring, you will have an even greater show of natural beauty, as the rushing water of the falls will be even more prominent. After experiencing the falls, head back down the same trail through the forest to return to your vehicle.
