On the precipice called Lewis Falls, Soldier Creek shoots (or cascades, or merely dribbles) some 50 feet down a twotiered rock face. The volume of water splattering on rocks and sand below is seldom dramatic; but the cool spray and the sounds of falling water are refreshing. Use the roadside mileage markers to identify the starting point—a small, shaded turnout on the right at mile 34.8, where Soldier Creek tumbles through a culvert under the highway. In the precipice called Lewis Falls, Sol- creek, under shade-giving oaks, bays, and Odier Creek shoots (or cascades, or bigcone Douglas-firs. Near the last cabin merely dribbles) some 50 feet down a two- upstream, the trail virtually disappears in tiered rock face.
