Tangerine Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Beginning at the Cold Spring trailhead, this hike travels the west fork of the creek for a ways before branching off the main trail and following the middle fork. You will rock hop and climb your way up the creek past pools and cascades before arriving at the gorgeous 200-foot waterfall.
Tangerine Falls is perhaps the most spectacular waterfall in the area. Almost 200 feet tall, the falls can be especially impressive after a big rain. The falls sits at the end of the middle fork of the Cold Spring Trail, which was the original route of the Cold Spring Road when it was used for traveling over the mountain. Although the site of the original route, it is no longer an established trail and can be somewhat difficult to follow at times. Increased usage over the years has helped form an unofficial trail. However, because there are some technical sections of boulder hopping that require coordination and a good grip, this trail is not recommended for small children."
