Leigh Creek Falls

Leigh Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The hike to Leigh Creek Falls and beyond is steep and strenuous but the payoff is enormous. You get to see not only a spectacular waterfall but also Leigh Lake, the largest lake in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness, and Snowshoe Peak, the tallest point in the range.

On the way, you stand a good chance of seeing mountain goats in the rocky, subalpine environment. There is no camping within 300 yards of the lake, which makes the trek most suitable as a day-hike. The mountain grandeur you find on this hike is hard to beat anywhere."
