Park along the side of the road and find the trail to the right of the creek next to a large yellow sign that reads, "NO FIRES." After 200 feet, the trail turns right between two granite boulders and continues half a mile up the canyon to Lewis Falls.

The trail is mostly shaded. Once you go past the cabins, follow the trail leading up to a crossing. Cross the creek and proceed to the falls. The falls are spectacular.

5 star route, but not really little kid friendly... there is a lot of scrambling and crossing the creek on logs

Keep your eyes peeled; it's easy to lose the trail, but if you're looking about for the right signs, you should stay on the right track.

This is a really secluded and easy trail to hike once you find the trailhead. I went this past Saturday, January 7, and the trail was very pretty and green. Be careful if you go after rainfall because it was and can get very slippery on some of the rocks you have to hike on to get to the waterfall. Some of the more recent reviews have a very good description on locating the trailhead. Good luck, be safe, and have fun!

Lewis Falls was a Beautiful hidden gem to discover. The trail is hard to find, so here is s review to help you enjoy this Hike. Once you pass ColdBrook Camp look for what looks like a Water Tower on the left side of the road around mile Marker 34. There is plenty of parking here. You can try to park closer at a Turnout up ahead.

There are no signs as previous reviewers mentioned. Not sure if it was run over or destroyed. So just look for the Mile Markers if you pass marker 34.87 you went one marker to far.

The trail will be on the Right Side of the street. You'll see the Water Drains under the road. That is where the Trail begins.

The actual walking Trail gets lost on the Hike so keep your eyes open. It's small and narrow. Toward the last 1/4 mile where you think it ends. That is where the fun begins. You'll need to climb over rocks, over fallen trees, under logs, and through the creek. You'll want to give up wondering if you will find the Falls. Even when you see where the Trail actually ends keep walking. The Fall is on the left side of the trial ending which you can't see til you're literally in front of it.

This hidden Gem has pretty much no Graffiti and no trash. Let's keep it that way.

Things you need or recommended:

-Adventure Pass required
-Long Pants, the trail in raw and rough and you'll be going through debree. I got my legs pretty scrapped up.
-Bring gloves to help get over rocks or logs
-Hiking Stick is useful to test areas when you walk through water and mud
-Bring extra Shoes. You're feet will get wet

Enjoy your Hike
