Began my walking down to the base of Salt Creek falls. Upon returning to the top I walked along Salt Creek; crossed a wooden bridge; reaching the junction of Vivian Lake trail and Diamond Creek trail. Take the trail to the right (Diamond Cr trail). Good fall colors to be seen. Soon reached a junction to reach Too Much Bear Lake which is just a very short side trip. Returning to the mail trail is some elevation gain from which you can hear and just barely see through the trees a waterfall in the distance. Continuing on along Diamond Creek is another junction signed Lower Diamond Creek Falls. This short hike will take you to the base of the falls. Note you will be crossing a log bridge with signage stating the bridge has been damaged and do not proceed if you are unsure. Returning to the main trail continue uphill for a view from above of this waterfall. Continuing on the main trail you reach an unmarked junction. Take the trail to the left which takes you back to Salt Creek parking area. (The other trail at the junction takes you to Falls Creek falls and Vivian Lake.
