Josephine Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Snowmelt, rainfall, and natural springs feed Bear Creek as it slides across the western slopes of 10,940-foot Mount Garfield. Waters spill through Bear Canyon, tumbling over granite slabs in a combination slide and horsetail fall.

The trail starts off fairly level, crosses two low footbridges, and then rises steadily for more than 1,000 feet along the western flanks of 8,380-foot Mount Buckhorn. You’ll enjoy views of crags “Sentinel Rock” and “Specimen Rock” as you hike high above the canyon and creek."
