Looking at the tracks here, and the pics. You guys need to go to the bottom of the falls. The waterfall is a cascade over 120foot. Once you hike down to the creek. You don't cross. Stay against the rocks and hike back up towards the left. You'll come to the edge of the canyon and make your way down(about 300foot elevation loss here) the steep dirt trail. You'll see the creek again. Then you need to hike upstream til you see the falls. It was beautiful when it flows nicely.
Ted G. on Kitchen Creek Falls Trail
Good hike on the infamous PCT. We explored and adventured the entire sections of the waterfall. The most challenging was very steep hike down to the bottom of the creek pool, then hiking back up, boulder climbing to get the 100+ ft. waterfall. It's a tough, but well worth the view and relaxation. We were the early birds at the start of a cold and windy day. Other hikers started to come as we were trekking back to the boulder creek trailhead.
Ted G. on Morena Butte Trail
Yesterday, we kike this challenging and thrilling trail; the famous Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and Morena Butte Trail. The PCT leading up to the Morena Butte was steady, but once we started trekking up the Morena Butte Trail, the category changed to hard. It was steep all the way up. But before we started the Morena Butte Trail, we were honored to bump into an 18-year kid, Tanner M., fresh out of high school and completing the last section of the PCT to Mexico Border from Canada. Back to the trail, bushwhacking and a boulder maneuvering, and trail markers really helped to get our bearings towards the top and peak log. We were excited to locate and sign the peak log. Total hiking mileage was 10-plus mileage, bot 5.4 miles as stated in the summary.
