The roar of the falls beckons from the parking area, and when the wind blows just right a fine mist reaches the lucky few waiting on the bridge. Gorge Creek Falls may be seen from the bridge. A different waterfall can be seen a short distance along the fully accessible (easy) paved trail, Gorge Overlook Trail (see description on previous page). When viewing from the bridge, please use caution. The bridgedeck is grated and may be slippery when wet. If you plan to cross SR 20 use the crosswalk and be alert for traffic.
