DIRECTIONS - Head east along Highway 20 and turn south onto Highway 530. In a couple miles, turn left onto Illabot Creek Road. At somewhere around 8-10 miles, the road goes around a sharp corner and over Iron Creek (no sign). Park at the creek and head into the woods on the right side. You'll quickly run into a small stream. Follow it up to the falls.

I had often assumed that this small creek had a tall waterfall on it, so on perhaps my dozenth trip into Iron Creek Falls, I took the short, but steep detour to find out. Sure enough, I ran into a 180' tall drop that might be really pretty if it was possible to find a good view. The hill around the creek is really steep so it's hard to find good footing to get a clear view. It was also very cloudy/foggy on my trip in. In all likelihood, the waterfall is much taller than what I have seen.

It should be noted that this creek is unnamed, so I made up Ferrous Creek to go along with Iron Creek that it runs into.
