Hike Description

Elowah Falls from above

Upper McCord Creek Falls is hidden away above mighty Elowah Falls. Pictures fail to do the matched pair of waterfalls justice. Though smaller than Elowah, they're a lot bigger than they seem at first glance. This is a fairly easy hike, appropriate for most beginners. There is a reasonable amount of climbing and a ledge section protected by sturdy handrails. Consider combining this hike with the Elowah Falls Hike.


This map is a bit misleading. Elowah Falls is where the top trail on the map crosses the creek. Upper McCord Creek Falls is where the bottom trail meets the creek.
