Upper Anderson Creek Falls is the largest of the five waterfalls on Anderson Creek, dropping somewhere around 130' in a tall fan of water. The falls occur a short distance downstream from Lower Anderson Lake. It's actually pretty easy to get to the top of the falls, but finding a clear view (as you can see) is all but impossible and even the view seen here was a dangerous one.

Thus far the only view I have attained of the falls was a partially blocked view from atop a 200' cliff that was a little sketchy even for me. It may be possible to reach the falls from the bottom where a full view is likely to exist, but I can't confirm that at this point. As good as this waterfall is, I would recommend staying away. The view is not good enough for the hairy situation you will find yourself in. I do, however, recommend hiking the trail which is one of the most popular in the area for good reason.
