The farther you go into the glen, the better the waterfall gets. This special place presents visitors with one long waterfall, but one that follows the twists and turns of a shale gorge sculpted by glacier activity. Deep and narrow, the gorge creates a snug home for McClure Creek, which plunges through the shale layers to widen its path and cascade down a long series of crazily stacked, solid rock steps. Eagle Cliff Falls—named for the shape of the rock surrounding the falls, which looks like an eagle’s head—begins as a plume coming through a notch at the top of the glen, fanning out as it tumbles over the gorge’s slick steps and moss-covered walls.
