    Directions to Trailhead

This hike is 14.5 km long and on the easier side of moderate, making it great for a longer leg stretch without too much elevation gain needed at any point. The waterfalls are beautiful, especially if it has rained recently. Expect moderate traffic on this route.

    Route Description for Flume Road Trail

    If you’re in the mood for a waterfall hike, hit the Flume Road Trail. This 14.5 km moderate route hugs the base of a mesa to a waterfall on Fossil Creek. The falls are quite beautiful, especially if it’s rained recently. This hike is a little longer but it spreads out the elevation gain nicely, making it a good choice for strong beginners and active families.

    There is no water access until the second half of this hike and there is no shade. Bring lots of water, especially if you’re planning to visit on a hot day. You’re going to want plenty to drink!

    From the trailhead, take Flume Road Trail as it first climbs directly up the mesa before levelling out to traverse northeast. You’ll hug the hill as it follows the curves of Fossil Creek. At the waterfall, snap some photos and enjoy the views before turning back and retracing your steps to the trailhead.
