This hike provides more bang for the buck. Butte Creek and Upper Butte Creek Falls would be fine destinations all by their lonesome. They are both beautiful and one-of-a-kind. But pair the two in the same hike with a truly memorable forest trail and you have as fine an outing as 1 mile can produce. From the parking area, begin by taking the leftmost of two potential trails. Follow the path as it descends into the forest and arrives at a junction 0.2 mile later. Take the path leading left toward the lower of the two falls. Continue hiking for another 0.2 mile through lush forest to a rocky outcropping and a viewpoint of Butte Creek Falls. The Butte Creek Falls viewpoint is a truly memorable one, as it provides 360 degrees of stunning view.
