Hike description  

Beautiful early spring hike when the water in the falls is full. Very steep hillside with rocks in places.

Leader

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

Time and distance

4.5 hours/3 miles

Difficulty

 

This is a steep hike, so being in condition is important. We’ll walk up S Fork Coppei Rd, wade across 3 creek crossings, then hike up the canyon to see the falls. If you’re not a steep hill hiker, you can still walk with us on the remote road along the creek for a couple of miles to the bottom of the first steep hill, then return or wait for the group to return.

Dogs welcome?

No, too brushy

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

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. Travel time 25 mins. Be ready for great views of the falls!

What to bring

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