Gorton Creek Falls
Gorton Creek Falls is a 120 foot (36 m) waterfalls that is very under-visited. The campground nearby brings some overnight visitors and that has accounted for the development of the trail system.
The Falls are reached by following a short path which passes a small dam along the way. The path gets slightly obscured near the end and route finding will be necessary to get a good view of the falls. The scenic nature of the falls is amplified by the difficulty that you will be forced to undertake to visit this fall.
The amphitheater that the falls has carved out magnifies the roar of the falls and gives the feeling of isolation. The steep walls of which are made of columnar basalts which is very common in the area. Certainly worth the hassle to reach the location.Related to:
