Rocky Mouth Falls
From the trailhead follow the trail as is ascends a long set of wooden
steps to the road. Once on the road, go right, following it as it
curves up and around to the left. The trail goes off the road on the right
most of the way through the curve, and is signed.
Once on the dirt trail, follow it as it ascends to the
waterfall. This section should take about 10-15 minutes. Total time to
the waterfall is about 20-30 minutes, and makes a great short family
hike. (12T 431896mE 4488424mN)
For the technically inclined, it is possible to rappel the waterfall.
Start by climbing the steep dirt trail left of the waterfall (looking
up canyon). Hike up the steep trail to where it begins to fade a bit,
and traverse right on rock
around the arete. This section should be no harder than class 4 if
good route finding skills are used. Once around the arete, climb back
down to the canyon bottom and top of the waterfall.
The waterfall can be rapped in 2 stages. The first rappel is about 10 m ( 33 ft. )
off a tree, and down over a large boulder. At the base of the
large boulder, a pinch is used for the second stage rappel anchor. This
rappel is about 25 m ( 83 ft. )
over another large boulder and down a chute.
Return the way you came.
