Pretty little stream but a tough hike in. Multiple stream crossings and a lot of scrambling. Had to turn around a ways up because I felt it was to tough on Angel and her recently repaired CCL.

The trail is marked as Upper Creek Falls. It's about a mile south of the actual Upper Creek Falls (the short mile loop with the parking lot) on 181. Just behind the guard rail is the entrance to this trail. It's definitely not the Upper Creek Falls trail. It's quite a ways from any major falls to speak of. However, along the creek bed there are some smaller falls that are nice enough to see. At about a mile in, the trail crosses the creek and heads back up the other side. The first mile in is steep and was washed out somewhat, but it appeared to be well maintained with fallen trees recently cut. There were many mountain bike tracks, although we saw none that day. The trail flattens out once you reach the creek, and it runs along the creek for about a mile to the south. There is a very nice campsite in a clearing along the north end of the creek.
