Trees down throughout the entire trail. No possible way to reach either falls. Big mess.

Beautiful! Our first time, today. Will definitely return. Lots of shade. Waterfalls are lovely as well! Loved that there were some uphills. Not difficult at all.

This was a really cool trail. It goes along a creek. We saw about medium waterfalls and some smaller ones. The trees are gorgeous. It’s mostly shaded. Took about two hours out and back. We had lunch at red rock falls, it’s worth seeing the falls from the bottom as well via the small trail at the top that leads there. The trail was hilly ups and downs. Not excessive elevation gain. There are two parking lots. The second one that has the sign that says Lewis creek is right by Corileau falls. When the trailhead beaches, go right for corileau (about 3-4mins, east to go and come back) and go left for Red rock falls.

The forest had great shade and kept me cool. The falls are beautiful. The exercise gave me a good workout.

HikingGreat!

The views of the Falls were very beautiful. I'd recommend starting the hike towards Corlieu Falls first as it is a shorter but steeper hike on the way back. This will allow you to get it out of the way and continue towards Red Rock Falls afterwards. I'd definitely recommend arriving early to beat the crowd. Overall, great hike with great views!

Overall a great trail, had a little more trash and graffiti than I remember from previous trips. Some areas are a little muddy/slick so be prepared for that, also some fallen trees you may have to go up and over.

Great trail for anybody wanting to get out and some beautiful sights including waterfalls which are easily accessible. The trail is immersive and beautiful. It’s also not too difficult, very shady and enjoyable.

Great hike definitely would recommend to friends and family! All ages can knock this hike out!! During winter season ran into some muddy areas on the hike. Would recommend hiking shoes for that reason. Also I didn’t have to use Snow chains to get to hike so definitely no snow in the area but great hike!

A little muddy yesterday and there was some snow! A great trail that leads to a nice waterfall. Waterfall is fun to swim in during summer!

WalkingMuddy

Walked to Red Rock Falls yesterday. Beautiful scenery on this trail. Quite muddy in several spots. A few trees to climb over or hop over and one I had to go under so be aware, but nothing a “spry walker” child or dog can’t handle. We were planning on going higher but didn’t have chains so stopping here was an after thought. But it was beautiful and well worth it. Looking forward to coming again to do the other falls but we were losing light this time. So! Grab your snack and water bottle and take a gorgeous walk alongside Lewis Creek.
