Features Waterfall

Family Friendly The trail is very short, paved with field stone and leads to a beautiful waterfall.

Need to Know

Be sure to park on the south side of the highway, as crossing the highway is very dangerous.

Footbridge Trailhead is just across the highway and has bathrooms and a day-use area, as well as access to the river. There is no crosswalk or other safe method to cross the highway on foot.

Description

This short trail was created by the CCC in the 30's and is paved with field stone, including a few small steps. The trail follows the burbling little Bridge Creek upstream to the Bridge Creek Falls, only a few hundred feet from the highway. Beautiful and peaceful, with some interesting remnants of a water catchment system in place below the falls. This fall felt like a fairy tale, surrounded by mossy green rocks and alders.

Flora & Fauna

Sword fern, alder, maiden-hair fern, sitka spruce.
