The Lake Anne Trail drops quickly from the parking lot and then enters a pretty meadow with a nice creek. A short distance downstream from the trail crossing the creek, it drops over two waterfalls. The upper falls is the taller of the two but can't be clearly seen. The lower falls can be seen clearly from the edge of the canyon. The falls drops in a series of small drops into an otherworldly canyon that looks like it should be on the moon. I've had people tell me this is an "ugly" waterfall, but I love it. The crazy moonscape makes it very unique and I find it anything but ugly; it's just not a typical NW waterfall. While the creek is very small and fairly seasonal, the location and the amazing canyon makes this a really cool spot.
