Two different trails lead to scenic Boulder Creek Falls, a dramatic 81- foot-high waterfall tucked into a narrow and shady canyon. The 2.75- mile-long trail featured by the Park Service follows the creek most of the way from a conveniently accessed trailhead just off South Shore Drive. However, following this route necessitates crossing the creek three times, and during spring, when the falls are at peak glory, you’re almost guaranteed to come away with wet footwear. The alternate trail described below is considerably shorter and avoids all three fords, but does require a slightly longer drive to reach the trailhead.
