This more upland route along Falls Creek rides the ridge above the creek, so the Upper Falls Creek Trail is a poorly named trail: You don’t get falls, and you don’t get a creek—at least, not much of either. But you do get a splendid forest experience and a chance to meet some of the locals: Mr. Grouse and Ms. Blacktail Deer are frequently found at home here, and the Pileated Woodpecker family frequently can be heard knocking their heads against the many trees in this old second-growth forest.
