DIRECTIONS - Drive out Glacier Creek Road for about six miles. Just before the road starts climbing up towards the trailhead, you should see a gated road on the left heading down towards Glacier Creek. Park and start walking up the overgrown road. Stay on the obvious main road for about two miles and you will encounter the creek running through the middle of the road. The curtain is upstream from here (you'll have to scramble up a little cliff).

The unnamed creek I refer to as Skyline Creek (because it comes off Skyline Divide) is a never-ending series of waterfalls. It becomes pretty difficult to split it up, but I've done the best I can. Thus far, we have discovered four waterfalls on the waterway, but there is at least one more above Horizon Falls. Upper Skyline Falls consists of an incredibly beautiful curtain shaped drop, a series of cascades below that, and then the group of small drops that runs directly through the old roadbed. This section totals about 110' in height.
