How to get there:

To get to Fall Creek Falls, take US-26 3.3 miles west from Swan Valley, ID. Turn left (south) onto NF-058. It's the first road after the bridge across the Snake River. Go south for 1.4 miles. Just past the fork in the road (you'll take the left fork) are some pullouts for parking. Take the foot trails on the left (east) side of the road for about 30 feet to a view of Fall Creek Falls from above.

Most of our group chose to stay at the top of the falls.

Zac, Jaren, and I elected to scramble down the waterfall to get a view from the bottom.

When we got down a ways and turned back to the rest of our group, we could see that the trail they were standing on was located on the edge of a large overhang. Scary.

Around the corner were several more waterfalls not visible from the main trail.

I still had my swimming suit on from ourrafting adventure, so I waded across the river to get some more pictures. The water was up to my armpits.
