Fall Creek Falls is tucked away in Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The waterfall is an impressive 335 feet from the top but at the base of the falls only the two lower tiers are visible. The hike is easy with a few suspension bridges to help you cross the creek. The road to the trailhead (Road 3062) is closed from Dec. 1 to April 1 so if you go during these months you will add an additional four miles to your hike.
