A series of pool-to-pool cascades tumble through a canyon upstream from Gray Eagle Lodge. Gray Eagle Lodge is a major draw in this part of the Lakes Basin Recreation Area, but you don’t have to stay at the lodge to hike the easy trail that follows Gray Eagle Creek up to Hawley Falls (aka Halsey Falls). The trailhead on the lodge access road provides easy access to the forested route, which leads to a lovely set of cascades. Confusion is possible at the trailhead, which serves several routes and is minimally signed, though new signage was planned as of 2015.
