Description
Waypoints (0)

The trailhead and first 500 feet are provided in cooperation with private land owners. Please respect private property! Enjoy a short hike, .7 of a mile to Upper Snow Creek falls- and .7 mile back. Part of the way through the trail, you'll come to a small sign as the trail splits. The left will take you to the lower falls and the trail to the right takes you to the upper falls. Be courteous as the trail can get narrow in places. If you see somebody coming, step aside to allow them through. This trail can be pretty heavily traveled at times with several vehicles parked at the trailhead- other times you may be the only people out on the trail. Be courteous, do not let dogs run loose- and please do not litter. The trail can be fairly wet during spring breakup and you will find muddy, icy and snow filled spots well into April or May. Trail will typically be accessible Late Spring, Summer and well into the Fall- though you may deal with some downed trees, snow, running water, etc in the springtime before it gets cleaned up!

Easy hike. Lower falls is blocked by fallen down trees. Upper Falls is better

Well-maintained short trail to a beautiful gem! Waterfalls are gorgeous, water is crisp and refreshing on a hot day, and the little pools below the falls are perfect swimming holes. Climbed the first falls to a spectacular 2nd falls and pool—actually the best one of the 3 you can only really see and experience the roar and spray if you scramble up there. Well worth the visit!

Terrific payoffs for the effort! Easy to get to, trail head is well-marked, trails are well maintained, waterfalls are terrific! Road going up has quite a washboard problem, but unremarkable otherwise. Trail has a plethora of little bridges, rails, and benches (there are even a couple off the path!). There trail T's half way down. To the left is the lower waterfall; to the right, the upper. It's a short, easy, self-explanatory trail.

Nice trail - short. Drove an hour and a half for a 3/4 mile trail. Not really a place to drive to for a picnic or anything - but still nice falls. Easy well marked trail.

A short hike that has a little bit of elevation gain, but both look outs are pretty. This is dog friendly and the trails were in fairly good shape.

Short scenic trail, would recommend. The upper right loop is definitely cooler than the lower left loop.

Easy hike. Great waterfalls with a huge amount of water flow. Fallen trees have been cleared from trail. You will get somewhat wet from the spray from the falls. Mosquitoes.

This is a MUST-SEE! You’ll have to drive on some dirt to get there, but if my Hyundai Elantra can do it than so can yours! It is a well-traveled, easy to navigate path and is short and not that steep. Both the lower and upper falls are easy to navigate and you will want to see both. You will get slightly damp but that’s the point, right? ;) Went on a Friday mid-day and only saw two other families. Also- the whole private property thing wasn’t an issue at all. Just be extra respectful (as you should anyways with Mother Nature).

Easy hike starts downhill. Trail splits for upper and lower falls. Both are worth seeing. The amount of water flowing this past weekend was amazing. Such power! A little muddy in spots, especially near the falls, but the trails was primarily in good condition.

Wonderful little walk to view some beautiful waterfalls. Trail was in excellent condition, a little muddy/slick especially at the bottom by the falls.

Well-maintained mostly-level trail leading to 2 beautiful water falls. Picturesque area. Enjoyed this very much. Thank you to the owners for allowing access. Worth visiting.

The falls on this hike are beautiful! All of the blowdown and debris from winter were recently cleared and we had no trouble reaching both the upper and lower falls. There was some ice at the upper falls as the temp was still pretty chilly. Adding to my favorites!

The trail is excellent, however several trees fell over the winter thankfully they are easy to maneuver around. At this time there is snow and ice on both trails mostly near the falls themselves.

Short and sweet, well maintained. The trail was busy, as to be expected on a short hike. We hiked after the Roman Nose lakes and it was a nice leg stretcher with pretty falls.

Great falls and path was very well kept. The trailhead is off the beaten path but worth it.

Very nice walk. There is some elevation change but not to bad. There is a couple benches to rest upon if needed. Trail is well maintained. Was expecting lots of mosquitoes but had no issues. Went early to beat the crowds. Its a busy trail on weekends. Lots of tree cover for shade. Not to good to get gps for the drone. https://youtu.be/bJMe7vOMYCc to see it from a different perspective.

Great easy trail for families and the falls were beautiful! Most of the trail is in the shade so not too hot. Mosquito repellant highly recommended.
