Comet Falls

Comet Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This hike leads to Comet Falls, one of the tallest falls in the park, named for the water’s likeness to a comet’s tail as it plunges 320 feet into the creek below.

The trail takes you through beautiful forest to several waterfalls, including Comet Falls, one of the tallest falls in the park. From the Van Trump Park Trail parking lot, hike north on the Van Trump Park Trail. The hike starts off with a bang, as you reach a bridge crossing Christine Falls in less than 0.3 mile. The bridge provides a birds-eye view of the oft-photographed falls that roar and churn around granite walls until making their final tumble near the Longmire-Paradise Road."
