Grandeur! Like a Phoenix in flight, this waterfall inspires and amazes all who visit. Easily making the authors favorites list, Panther Creek Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area. A wonderful place for a picnic or a quick dip, it gets quite a few hikers, especially on the weekends. You are not likely to have this one to yourself for long, if at all.

Very nice trail along Panther Creek with some easy elevation change. Parking was adequate, although the weekends overflow with hikers this time of year. As you near the falls the trail become a bit treacherous in places, narrow and rocky along a cliff. It is very doable but take care as noted. The falls and a beach make the hike well worth time invested.
