Length: 1.3 mi • Est. 46 m
NOTE: the google directions will take you to the wrong trailhead because Consagua Spura FS Road is missing from the google map. When you are driving on Witt Road, do not continue as far as directed but take a right on Consagua Spur FS Road instead and drive until it dead ends. There you will find the trailhead. Please note there is very poor GPS signal in this area so hikers recommend using our off line map. Once you park in the lot the trail goes off to the LEFT of the sign that says 170. Easy, rewarding hike. The falls area is great, lots of nice pools and rocks to sit on. There are bees in this area, be aware if you are allergic.Show more
