The gradual grade of the Upper Falls Creek Trail slowly climbs away from Falls Creek and crosses two creeks before reaching the waterfall in approximately 2 1/2 miles. The trail flattens out for about 3/4 mile, meets Forest Route 6053 and ends.
Features of this trail include Falls Creek, which surges over rocks and timber cascading from a height of 100 feet, creating a gentle mist below. Approximately three miles from the trailhead a large clear pool about 50 feet wide and 10 feet deep, provides a lovely picnic spot. Elk, beaver and otter wildlife await the forest visitor.
Directions: From Wind River Ranger Station, Follow County Route 30 north. After passing the Carson National Fish Hatchery, turn right on Highway 30 for about 3/4 mile and turn right on Forest Road 3062. Proceed approximately 1 1/2 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road.
Distance: 4.0 miles
