HikingGreat!

Weather and area were great. The trail markings suck, especially in the beginning around the golf course. Even after you leave the course, the “red” trail markings do not follow the normal patterns. For example, a turn in the trail direction doesn’t use the double markings like many trails do. At times they spray paint an arrow. Anyway, once you get off the course it’s a nice walk, at times muddy with a few tree limbs thrown in.

We did not complete this trail because there was just too much snow. The trail wasn’t cleared so the snow was up to our knees. We did come across a husky dog that maybe belonged to a house nearby(he had a collar). But I must admit that witnessing a ball of fluff running in my direction looked like a wolf until he got closer... LMAO... That was the highlight of this trail; playing fetch with a husky. I imagine this trail is easier and beautiful without the snow.

Nice hike. Kinda weird where it starts but once you find it (on the actual golf course) it’s a great trip. Not difficult at all.

This is just basically straight up the mountain with no great views, vistas, meadows, wildlife or scenery. It’s a pretty forest with well maintained markers so easy to follow. The last bit is pretty steep and narrow to get to the top of the falls which was just a tad bigger than a trickle. There were a lot of flies that fly straight into your eyes which happened to me at least 30 times. A floppy hat helped a bit. We had a husky (dog) with no collar guide us the entire way there and back. She joined us at the golf course and never left our side. She disappeared right at the end and we never figured out where she came from.

It is a little tricky finding the trail. Follow the directions on the nap on this site. Go to the golf course behind the hotel. When you see the tree house, turn right and climb the hill ti green # 9, continue straight to green # 1, then turn left and go to green # 7, then follow signs for Webster Pass until you see sign for Winter Clove Falls or WC Falls, and then follow red swatches on the trees. The rushing water can be heard in the creek below. The waterfall is beautiful and high and more than a trickle.

Wanted something easy and new, so ventured out to this trail the other day. Strange start on a golf course, but nice and scenic trail. Pretty quick elevation gain, but only a trickle at the falls. Was a nice nature walk to get some air
