essay bro:

A legal way into Falls Creek Falls is to continue to the end of even the jeep road portion of forest road #203.  Then a three-mile hike dropping down into Falls Creek Canyon will bring you to Falls Creek Falls.  This will not be easy because there is no trail.  Please make a copy of my map below and enjoy using it.
