This hike passes 15-foot Crystal Falls, an arch, and a rockhouse, then makes its way through the Hidden Passage in the first mile. From there, walk along a cliffline above Thompson Creek, gaining views, before taking a side trail to 25-foot Double Falls. Precipitation has its advantages, namely filling our mountain streams with water, making waterfalls—well, fall. In spring, waterfalls crash, they roar, they splatter and splash, creating misty vapors that refract spring’s brilliant sunlight, sometimes even showing off rainbows. You may see this effect at Crystal Falls.
