This is a nice, easy trail for hiking or biking to a lovely waterfall. Bike or hike 1.1 miles up the Goat Lake Trail to a trail junction. Right (straight ahead) is the hiker-only trail to Goat Lake. For Chocwich Creek Falls, bikers and hikers angle to the left as the trail narrows. This is the former FR 4096. Take this trail another mile north to Chocwich Creek and an impressive waterfall. To go farther, large rocks provide an easy ford of Chocwich Creek. Travel another 1.4 miles through forest to Bedal Creek. There is one clearing giving a mountain and valley view to the north, toward Darrington.

Trail was not difficult, but was *VERY* overgrown in sections - I was wishing I had brought my machete. Had to make do with a stout stick to hack a passage through the devil's clubs in several places. The falls are quite picturesque, and there was some satisfaction in knowing that we were probably the first people to visit them in quite a long time, but be prepared to do some serious bushwhacking if you go there.
