The trail descends steadily for about 2 miles until you get to White Rock Creek, crossing Forest Road 1003 on the way (this is probably the road you drove up to get to White Rock). The area around the creek has many features. First, the trail will cross the creek twice in 0.2 miles and your crossings can be wet if the water is up. Second, there are lots of flat areas for camping just as you reach the first crossing and on the other side. There is a grotto up the creek before the first crossing that has a high but small waterfall (probably dry in the summer). Last, but not least, is the water fall between the two crossings. It is high volume with a large pool and can be seen from either side of the creek.

These are wet weather falls most of the year. So best viewed in the spring or fall. Have done this a couple of times. A great hike. Much to do in the area. Can camp at the falls. The trail is part of the Shore lake west trail, It is shorter, you can do out and back if you don't have time to do the whole Shore Lake West trail.
