This beautiful 45-foot waterfall plunges into a rugged chasm and is one of three waterfalls on the 22-mile Tully Trail. Although this trail is easy and short (except for the optional descent into the chasm), the road to get here is extremely rugged and is only passable with a high-clearance four-wheel-drive vehicle. If you are feeling adventurous—and the water level is not very high—you can scramble down one of the steep trails slightly downstream to the bottom of the gorge and work your way up along the bottom, clambering over rocks to get a cool perspective of the falls. Follow the same trail to get back to your vehicle.
