Essay Bro

Parking beside Hwy 180 a short ways east of mile marker 4, you can walk down stream less than a quarter mile to this waterfall.


You will find this area to be a place that you will want to return to... time and time again.  Upper Frisco Canyon is a beauty…!!!  The way I like to do it is... to park at the campground shown below at the downstream end of the Upper Frisco Canyon... then hike the north-side canyon rim up stream 2 miles to the highway bridge and return by hiking along the Frisco River.  You’ll likely have to do some wet crossings of the Frisco River.
