McWay Canyon to Canyon Falls Professional Review and Guide
"This easy hike begins from the main entrance of Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and meanders up McWay Canyon through a rich, atmospheric coastal redwood forest. The shaded path parallels McWay Creek up the canyon and ends at Canyon Falls, a long, narrow, two-tiered waterfall on the South Fork of McWay Creek. The 30-foot cataract cascades off fern-covered rock cliffs in a lush grotto at the back of the serene canyon. The trail begins on the Ewoldsen Trail, which continues up to a ridgetop overlook for a longer hiking option (Hike 50)."
