Rincon Creek Falls
Rincon Creek Falls drops about 20’ in a series of ledges, shown here with ice and very low-flow in Nov 2012… We were very Dry.
...and below is a 20’ high water-slide with r-r-r-ridges ...and ice to cool your rear some... but the ice is gone in May.

fun fact- The Pot Creek Road has been closed now for maybe 15 years and beaver dams are now 6-feet high and full of big trout…!!!
This is a great place to cool off during summer heat...!!!
I do not know why it has taken so long for me to finally hike up Rincon Creek… ah… er… my radar has told me for years now that there were waterfalls up there. I just visited there for my first time in mid-November 2012 …and it is wonderful country. I SHALL RETURN…!!!!
