Moon Falls

Moon Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The same creek that produces Spirit Falls downstream produces the striking Moon Falls. And just like Spirit Falls, Moon Falls is a great spot for a picnic break. From the parking area, the trail briefly follows an old road before becoming a more traditional trail. The path leads through very young forest for almost the entire 0.5 mile to the falls.

However, just when the falls get within earshot, the trail banks sharply to the left and delivers you into a stunningly beautiful old-growth canyon that hides another perfectly placed picnic bench. Moon Falls spreads out and veils across a broad wall of basalt for nearly 100 feet. It then collects itself and plunges in side-by-side falls that crash into mossy boulders, becoming Alex Creek again."
