An easy, well-graded trail leads to the bottom of a deep canyon and Yakso Falls. In low-water conditions it’s possible to walk along tree roots to an exquisite rock beach perfect for a picnic and rock skipping. From the roadside trailhead, hike 0.3 mile to a very low, potentially no-flow creek crossing where a footbridge used to be. The trail continues a mild ascent before rounding a corner and descending to the bottom of a canyon and the base of Yakso Falls after 0.7 mile of total hiking. The beach area near the base of the falls will only be accessible during the low-flow months of summer. And even then you have to climb along some tree roots and potentially get your feet wet to access the rocky beach.
