Rustic Falls

Rustic Falls is the smallest of the falls on Orcas Island, but it just may be the prettiest. Cascade Creek runs underneath a huge downed tree and falls about 8' over a rock ledge and into a little pool. During normal water levels it is generally confined to two segments, but if the water is really high it can spread way out across the rock face in a very impressive fashion. The trails leading to Cascade, Rustic, Cavern, Paul Creek, and Hidden Falls are an absolute must for anyone visiting Orcas Island.
