Rainbow Falls and Institute Creek Professional Review and Guide
"A trail with a variety of options, a short hike to waterfalls, or longer overnight adventures into the high country above Wrangell. The Rainbow Falls Trail is a short, steep hike to see Rainbow Creek in freefall in a lush hemlock forest. If you’re interested in a longer hike, the trail continues beyond the falls as the Institute Creek Trail, which leads to a trail shelter at an overlook of Shoemaker Bay. A branch of the trail climbs into higher country as the North Wrangell Trail, leading to the High Country and Pond Shelters."
