Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... creek to get the best view from the base. The waterfall is rather interesting. The water flows in two streams down a steep cliff face, then tumbles over huge moss-covered rocks, making its way into Upper Creek. Right near the base of the falls, there was a crawfish clinging to the moss along a cascade. He was not happy to have visitors and swung his claws around in displeasure. We had a late lunch/early dinner at ...

... that we had to start at the top on the far side to slide the fastest. The water was quite cold and I think everybody was a bit relieved that we could stay mostly dry sliding down. Margo, the bull mastiff, also enjoyed playing in the waterfall, running down after us as we slid down on the turtle.

After this, we continued on the ...

... while some guys were fishing in the river. After lunch, I climbed out onto the rocks at the base of the falls for some pictures. There’s an interesting “pothole” in the rock next to the waterfall. When we finished lunch, we headed back up to the trail, stopping to see some nice cascades along the creek, and then backtracked to the car and made the short drive further up FR 464 to the trailhead for ...
