Hike description  

Beautiful early spring hike when the water in the falls is full. Very steep hillside with fallen trees in places. It’s a serious workout!

Leader

Karen Yager, 509-520-8623, karen@karenyager.com

Time and distance

4.5 hours/2 miles

Difficulty

 

This is a steep hike so being in condition is important. We’ll walk over the N Fork Coppei Rd hill, then hike across the steep hillside canyon wall to see the falls. Hiking sticks and hiking boots are important. We'll be going through brush, but no water. 

If you’re not a steep hill hiker, you can walk along the remote road above the falls with your dog and enjoy the wildlife until the group returns.

Dogs welcome?

No, too brushy on the steep hillside, but ok to bring dogs to walk along the remote road.

Start location  

To car pool, meet at 8:20 am below the tall Staples sign in the Cascade Farm & Outdoor parking lot on 598 N Wilbur Ave across from McCurley Toyota. Leave at 8:30 am.

Directions

Go through Dixie on Hwy 12 E about 2.5 mi to the top of the hill, turn R at elevator on Lewis Peak Rd. At the first Y, take the left fork on Walker Rd. At the bottom of hill, stop and wait for Karen Yager who will lead you up to the falls on North Fork Coppei Rd.

What to bring

Lunch, water, hiking boots, walking stick, leather gloves for brush
