A popular, family-friendly route along a creekbed in a deep canyon. The hike’s payout: a 50-foot waterfall spraying down the side of a rock cliff. About 50 feet before the falls, the trail divides. The right spur descends to the base of the falls and the main trail to the left leads to the top. A natural spring feeds Battle Creek, augmented by snowmelt. So while the falls’ spray becomes heaviest in spring, the creek and the falls are perennial.

This was a really nice, short hike to a beautiful waterfall. The hike is really short, perfect for a quick afternoon trip. There was still a little snow and ice (late march) but it should be gone by early April.

Used this trail to take the scouts to the summit of Big Baldy, which is a 10.0-mile round trip hike up and back the same trails. Nice hike and views on the Battle Creek Trail portion to the Great Western Trail. We went in Fall when there were a lot of tall grasses and weeds on the trail, and wished we had worn pants instead of shorts.
