DIRECTIONS - Turn off Baker Lake Road onto FR 1106 which goes over the top of the dam. Follow the road up a few miles to the Baker Lake Trailhead. About a mile and a half along the trail, you will encounter Anderson Creek (impossible to miss). The falls are about 1/4 mile upstream. It's pretty tough to get to and not worth it unless you can figure out how to get a view of the bigger falls upstream.

Anderson Creek pours out of a massive, extremely narrow canyon and drops about 15'. I'm convinced there is a much better falls upstream but I can't get a view of it. I've tried coming in from the bottom and from the top with no view. I have a couple more tricks up my sleeve so keep your fingers crossed for some sort of view of the main falls in the future. The good news is that Middle Anderson Creek Falls is not horribly difficult to get to and is a great waterfall. There is also a large upper falls on the creek is tough to reach as well.
