Explore Upper Potato Falls

1 Miles Total - 100 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Andrew Jaeger

These falls are secluded, scenic and close to Copper Falls State Park. You will probably be the only one at these falls.

You will turn off of Hwy 169 onto a gravel road, follow the road all the way to the end for the trail head. Please drive respectfully as people live on this road.

Once you park, you will see multiple trails down to the river. Find the sign for Upper Falls and head that way. After .3 miles you will reach a stair case. Climb down the stairs (about 130) to the river and observation deck. You can view the falls from the observation deck or climb down to the river bank and relax right next to the waterfall.

You might have phone service at the parking lot, but not at the falls, so enjoy the solitude!

Make sure you check out Hike to Copper Falls and Hike to Lower Potato Falls while you are in the area!
