At 200 feet tall, Overwhich Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the region and well worth the two-day trek. Unlike the many stream following routes in this book, this hike has the unique characteristic of following ridgeline terrain for more than half the distance. Travel through a lodgepole burn for a quarter mile before entering Douglas fir forest and meadow parkland near Porcupine Saddle. At the summit, views open up of the grassy meadows bordered with sagebrush. In the morning or evening you have a good chance of spotting mule deer or elk grazing at the forest edges.
