A short hike reveals a hidden treasure... a 90 foot waterfall. Park at the locked gate at the trailhead. Go around the gate and walk up the road. Take the first road to your left (about half a mile from the trailhead). Follow this road and take the first road on your right. Hike about a quarter-mile to a road on your left. This road has large dirt berm across it along with a deep ditch, to keep wheeled vehicles from entering the area. Hike the small trail which leads around the berm and leads down the hill. When you reach the bottom of the hill you will see Eddings Creek and the top of Falling Rock Falls. Be VERY careful in this area as the rocks can be quite slippery and a fall from here could be fatal. If hiking with children, please keep them away from the edge of the falls. There are small trails on both sides of the falls that lead to the bottom of the falls. Once again, exercise extreme caution on these trails. There is a cavern behind the falls which is quite fun to explore.

It should be noted that there are actually two waterfalls here. Just continue following the trail under the first in order to reach the second.

Very easy hike, except getting down to the waterfall which isn't bad. Enjoyed seeing both waterfalls.

My 9-year-old and I did this easily! What fun walking behind the falls. We will definitely enjoy this one again.

Very beautiful. 4 stars because of the graffiti, and most the trail to the fall is a driveway like road

Easy hike in. Cave under the waterfall. We went in the first week of October. There has been no rain and subsequently no water fall. The pond under the water fall is dried up. Found a lot of animal tracks in the area of some of puddles of water that were still present.
