Description

From the trail, hikers will get a close-up view of this waterfall. Raven Cliff Falls is an impressive waterfall that cascades nearly 400 feet as Matthews Creek plunges down the sheer rock face. The falls are especially scenic in the fall when the surrounding foliage changes color.

Half-Day Hike: Getting to the waterfall involves an approximately 4-mile hike using the Raven Cliff Falls Loop.

Nice hike followed by beautiful water feature. Have been here a few times when the cloud cover stopped the view, but not today.
