This is the best of the four smallish waterfalls located on Davis Creek near Glacier. Here Davis Creek drops nearly vertically for about 78' before striking the bedrock and horsetailing, sliding, and cascading for another 25'. There appears to be one more waterfall a short distance upstream that we will bag in the spring as well. Thus far the upper falls has been in the snow and we prefer to avoid snow if at all possible. If you scramble down to the base of the falls be careful. The rocks near the base are amazingly slippery.
