Parking/Access Road Notes: Welton Falls Rd beyond Cream Hill Road turn is a little bumpy but fine for good 4WD. Drove to trailhead on Welton Falls Road - parked near logging gate (not blocking). Wouldn't take the prius this far but was great in Jeep. A few really bumpy sections to Welton Falls Rd (past Cream Hill Road Junction).

Comments: Always looking for an excuse to visit the falls. Absolutely noone around. Super pretty - water flowing good! LOVE the mossy canyon walls.

On Back 80, we just wanted to check out the water crossings and enjoy these lightly-used trails. Always a pleasure. Turned around at first (ski trail) junction, about .75mi from Welton Falls Rd.
