The East Fork Trail to Tulchina Falls is an excellent waterfall hike. The falls are spectacular from the bottom and can also be climbed—carefully—for a different view. The biggest drawback with this trail is getting to it. It is a relatively short hike to the falls, but it is a 10.5-mile venture to the trailhead. The path parallels the east fork of the Eklutna River, travels through the valley and across a variety of terrain, including mixed forests, rockslides, riverbanks, unbridged stream crossings, and shrubby vegetation.
