Left: Upper Trestle Falls on Brice Creek

The trail along this lovely creek leads past small waterfalls and swimmable pools under the canopy of an old-growth forest. The route is fun for children and open even in winter. A paved road unobtrusively parallels the trail on the creek’s opposite shore, making access easy at several points. To hike the entire trail one way, plan on leaving a shuttle car or bicycle at the upper trailhead. If waterfalls are your goal, however, consider starting at the upper trailhead instead. From there a 3.4-mile loop climbs to Trestle Creek, where the trail ducks behind the creek’s spectacular upper falls. The falls are prettiest when full, in spring.
