Description

Added by Austin Jackson

This is an easy hike to a beautiful waterfall that is extremely photogenic.

Park at the Eagle Creek Trailhead, and backtrack out towards the highway. Take the path to the right and walk alongside the highway for nearly a half mile. Stop when you are on the bridge and see the Ruckel Creek Trail to your right. If you look left, you will notice a waterfall dropping below you. This is Ruckel Creek Falls, not to be confused with Mossy Grotto, its neighbor up the stream. To photograph the falls from ground level, back track to the field that you passed, and go through the field and walk towards the stream. Once you hit the steam, you should see the falls to your right. To return, go back the same way you came.
