Ross Creek is located near Bull Lake in the Cabinet Mountains south of Troy. The hike to South Fork Ross Creek Falls is a spectacular, yet challenging adventure for waterfall enthusiasts who don’t mind getting their feet wet and scrambling off-trail on difficult terrain. First, you amble along a beautiful stream through ancient groves of cedar and hemlock and then come to a series of stream crossings. Bring extra footwear, and don’t attempt the fords at high water. After ascending a steep mountainside to the falls area, bushwhack into a steep gorge where water tumbles violently over the rocks.
