"Ghost Falls can be accessed from every trailhead in the Corner Canyon system of linking trails, but when approached from the Ghost Falls trailhead, the hike is a pleasant downhill stroll, complete with shade, gurgling springs, and seasonal wildflowers. Short and sweet, with a scenic waterfall at the end, this trail is perfect as a family hike with youngsters or just a quick forested getaway."

Easy and gradual hike up to the falls. They were amazing! Very scenic hike on the way to the falls too. Well worth the hike. We hiked it with our three year old and he was able to hike most of the way on his own. There are a few places where water crosses the trail so be prepared. This is a very popular hike and parking can be difficult. I recommend a late afternoon/early evening start time if you are going during the summer months to avoid the crowd.
