We weren't sure quite what to expect with this one but I can assure you it is not wheelchair accessible. There is a pretty intense dirt road for about an hour to get to Faucherie Lake and a mild hike to the top of the waterfalls. We did have to cross some water because the lake was so high. Super neat spot and I would definitely go again.

Pretty difficult to locate the trail. No signs posted and unclear directions. However after coming across a ranger we were able to get the correct trial head. Very easy walk to top of falls but pretty steep down to the water/swimming hole. Gorgeous spot, totally secluded, not a soul in sight!
