There are a series of three beautiful waterfalls along the Groff Creek

Once onto River Road, drive north for 4.6 miles until the drivable road stops. From here, it is a 1.8 mile hike to the top of the series of 3 waterfalls. The first waterfall, 30 ft in height, can be heard at approximately 1.6 miles from the trailhead. Scramble down to the stream to view the falls. Follow the stream further upstream to reach the other 2 waterfalls, both require a hike downhill to see them.

All three take some extra effort to get into position to see the falls. The first 2 are more difficult to get to than the 3rd.
