DIRECTIONS - Cross valley views of parts of Kulshan Ridge Falls can be had from various points on the Swift Creek Trail. It's easier to spot heading north than south. They aren't very good views either way.

Kulshan Ridge Falls is like a smaller version of nearby Ptarmigan Falls. The small creek that harbors the falls drops somewhere around 300' in a series of small drops. This is an EXTREMELY rough estimate so don't put too much credence into the height. It could very well be 800'. The waterfall can be seen much more clearly from other parts of the trail than shown in this picture but for some reason I neglected to get a good picture when I hiked most of the trail in 2012. Either way, this one isn't much to get excited about unless you can get up close to it, and that would be very difficult indeed. From the base, one should be able to see both this waterfall and nearly Ptarmigan Falls.
