A good workout hike with multiple creek crossings and a waterfall.

Falls Canyon Trail (Trail 3) in McCormick's Creek State Park takes on challenging, hilly terrain. There are a number of creek crossings as you pass through the canyon – for this reason, seasonal water levels sometimes make this hike inaccessible. The trailhead is located across from the Canyon Inn.
