DIRECTIONS - Drive out the Baker Lake Road and turn right onto the road leading to the Upper Baker Dam (FR 1106). In about 3/4 of a mile, the road makes a sharp left with an old gated road on the right. Park and walk down the old road. It will end at Sulphur Creek where the bridge used to be. The falls are a couple hundred feet downstream from here so smash your way through the brush until you get to the cliff. There's one little spot with a root ladder that gets you down to the bottom.

Sulphur Creek runs through a narrow chute before launching itself out into a pool of crystal clear water. The cliff surrounding the falls is undercut making a little cave underneath. During the spring and summer there are a lot of bees near where you drop into the canyon so keep your eyes open. I'd love to come up with a more fitting name for this one so if you can think of anything, let me know. On my most recent trip to the falls I dropped a tape over the top and measured it at 24' tall.
