essay bro

The two lower waterfalls are just down below the parking area maybe 100 yards or so... however the upper waterfall is about 2½ miles up trail #180.  it cannot be seen from the trail so watch for the trail to climb up above the stream on the left-hand side of the creek looking up stream.  When you see this happening leave the trail and continue up Little Dry Creek about 100 yards to visit and enjoy this pleasant waterfall…!!!


The upper tier of the lower Little Dry Creek Falls which is real close to where you park your wheels... is very special... see in the photo on the right at the top of this page... the falls drops into an extremely narrow “slot” canyon that is slanted... THIS IS A WAY COOL PLACE, HEY….!!!!!!


This link for the updated, enlarged map below shows the highest and best of all the Little Dry Creek Falls.  However, this highest and best Little Dry Creek Falls has not yet been visited or documented.  We haven’t got there yet.  We hope to soon.  But maybe you will beat us getting in there... if you do please share your photos, GPS point and field notes with us... or... we may really get angry...!!!
