Big Waterfall. Easy Access. Short 1.2-mile roundtrip hike. Dogs-friendly hike.

Battlecreek Falls is a great place to get away after a long day of work—or if you're looking for a great hike but are short on time. It's a great way to get the dog or your family out to enjoy some nature.

The falls are about a 15-25 minute walk from the parking lot, the waterfall is enormous and you'll have an amazing view of the sunset.

This is my favorite place to rig a rope up at the top and rappel over the falls. Cold water!

Short fun hike! Went up a little bit above the falls! Can't wait to get up and see what's back behind it!

Quick and easy hike to Battlecreek falls. This has been a favorite since I was young. The real treat lies in continuing past the falls and up into the beautiful green meadows farther up behind Mount Mahogany.

We hiked it at the beginning of February and the falls were half frozen. It was a beautiful destination at the end of a quick little hike. I would highly recommend checking it out on a nice wintry day!

Its a great, short hike to an amazing waterfall. There are also bolts at the top of the falls for rappelling.
