    Route Description for Gordon Creek Falls Trail

    When they’re flowing, the Gordon Creek Falls are a scenic sight at the end of a neat box canyon. This hike has a solid bang for your buck when you consider the minimal effort required overall and the pretty sights you’ll see.

    The first half of this trail is much easier than the second half, which gets a little more adventurous but isn’t too difficult to manage. Try to visit when there’s been recent rain to see the waterfalls flowing. Additionally, watch for critters on this hike. Users report seeing everything from toads to cows to rattlesnakes.

    When arriving, park in the small space on Colcord Road at the powerlines just past MP 001. You’ll start with a lovely hike through the pines on an old road. This is an easy warm-up. Continue along the creek into the canyon, hiking along the creek bed. You’ll be doing a bit of boulder-hopping to get to the falls. The first waterfall is often small, but the second usually has more water flowing. Once you’re done, you’ll head back on the same route.
