Hike to McClellan Falls

Rate this Adventure Washington McClellan Falls Trails

Added by

Secret Waterfall (relatively unknown until 2008). Limited crowds. Parking lot is at 2500' and the falls are below at 2000'0.25 mile hike to the falls.

The trail begins at the end of Forest Service Road 5110. Find the faint path and follow it downstream. A side trail takes you to the 30 ft. Upper Curly Creek Falls. Follow along the steep canyon another 500 yards and you'll hear the falls. Once you've established where they are, backtrack a bit and bushwhack your way down the loose steep brush until you reach a clearing and can make your way safely to the creek.

This is a steep, dangerous hike with thick brush so it would be best to leave dogs and children home.
