This short waterfall ices over and offers some good beginner routes beside it. The trail switches back a few times to allow access to the top part of the falls, which is very grown in with bushes on the south side of the creek. The falls are a short hike from the Hurricane Creek Trailhead which may be driveable certain times of the year. Otherwise it isn't too far to hike up the road from whatever point you can make it. There are several houses and cabins on the lower part of the road after leaving the valley.
