What you can see of it is beautiful. Shadow Falls twists and crashes through narrow rock cracks in three visible tiers. After miles of gravel-road driving, you’ll be happy to see the trailhead. And the hike to Shadow Falls is pretty straightforward. From the parking area, follow the path as it descends into the forest for 0.3 mile before arriving at a footbridge. The sometimes-brushy trail continues its descent through remarkable stands of old growth for another 0.4 mile before reaching a switchback and dropping the last 0.1 mile to the falls viewing area. The viewing area is fenced off for a reason. Exercise caution here. The falls themselves are slightly elusive. Cavitt Creek weaves through cracks and shadows before reemerging and tumbling its final 30 feet.
