Porter Falls

Little Porter Falls are located at the confluence of the South and West Forks of Porter Creek. Here one branch cuts through a cleft while the other plunges over ledge into a big punchbowl. Follow a quiet trail through stately moss-covered trees to a small hidden rocky chasm to view them.

The trail leads through dark forest and begins climbing. It then traverses a steep slope before descending and coming upon the South Fork Porter Creek. The trail then comes up along the tumbling West Branch Porter Creek. Continue to the confluence of the two branches and Porter Falls. It’s a pretty little spot shaded by luxuriant greenery. The West Fork plunges into a basaltic punchbowl basin while the South Fork careens through a tight basaltic chasm.
