Cascade Creek is a short but stunning creek that connects Tillery Lake to Falls River. The trail begins in the Targhee National Forest, adjacent to Grand Teton, and heads into the remote, south end of Yellowstone National Park.
The trail parallels the creek past a steady series of whitewater cascades and waterfalls en route to Terraced Falls. The falls is a six-tiered cataract on the Falls River which plunges 1 40 feet between steep volcanic columns of rock. The trail to Terraced Falls also passes a series of magnificent waterfalls and powerful whitewater cascades along both Cascade Creek and Falls River. Below the confluence of the two creeks is Cascade Acres, a segmented set of rapids dropping 30 feet over a 200-yard stretch of the creek.
