Directions to Trailhead

Running Eagle Falls Trail is a great kid and wheelchair-friendly hike that takes you through stunning scenery. Upon arrival at the waterfall, you will see the smaller rush of water at the base; however, there is more than meets the eye. The Running Eagle Falls are also known as Trick Falls, as a second, only-visible-in-the-summer, 12 m waterfall lays overhead and blocks the smaller waterfall. This second, large waterfall only flows in the spring and summer months.
