Head into the woods behind the sign (on the left/south side of the road) and bushwack straight down the hill. A small drainage should be just to your right, you will want to follow this all the way down to Whitaker Creek. Once you hit Whitaker Creek, Turn Left and follow the creek downstream, coming to Amber Falls almost immediately. To get to Compton's Double Falls, continue to follow Whitaker Creek downstream, but staying up on the bench up above, keeping the creek just off to your right. You will pass two small drainages along the way, each containing small waterfalls. After about ¾ mile, you will reach the falls; the creek will drop sharply and you should be able to hear the falls, too. It takes a lot of water to get this waterfall running as a double, so save it for a really rainy day. To return, hike back out the same way that you came in. Trails are marked with Orange bands to help guide you so keep an eye out for those in the trees.Show more
