    May Creek Falls

    by GuthrieColin Updated May 20, 2008

    At just under 80 feet (25 meters) May Creek Falls is a very interesting destination. I would not, however, go through all the trouble to get here just for this waterfall. I was trying to reach Isabel Falls which i will have to attempt again later. The trail becomes very difficult the further you go.
    At only about 1 mile this may seem like a very easy hike but the road that access the trail head is very difficult to travel. When i attempted it with a vehicle with fairly good ground clearance i had to stop before one Very deep puddle. After that the trail head is not easily found and even if that is found, the trail is extremely steep. All of that hassle aside, the hike is very scenic and one which is very enjoyable.

    Directions:
    Accessing May Creek falls is a bit of a Hide and Seek game. From HWY 2 turn onto Rieter rd. near Gold Bar. After appx 1.6 miles turn left just after a Gravel pit onto a road that has a open gated entrance. Go 1 mile on this road turning left after the power lines. The road gets very bumpy here and near the end you may have to stop. May creek will be reached after about 1.2 miles from there you will want to venture into the woods and proceed up the ridge. The trail can be reached from there.

    Going Outside the Fences

    At the several viewing platforms their are fences prohibiting your access. If your like me you will want to see more and move beyond those barriers. The one thing to keep in mind if you do choose to do so is that the fall from many of these platforms could easily kill you. The middle fall drops 265 feet (80 m) and the others have similar drops. I find that the exploration finds me better shots and views but be aware of what your getting into and if their is any apprehension in your mind, don't do it.
