DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to Apogee Falls. Continue bushwhacking downstream along the creek for a few hundred feet until you see this waterfall. The climb down to the creek bed for a clear view is pretty steep.

The lower falls on this section of Pyramid Creek is the smallest and least impressive of the three, but it's still a very pretty waterfall. The creek cascades a total of 27' in height, with a weird elbow about 1/3 of the way down. At the top of the falls, most of the creek cascades right away while a small portion delays its drop in order to plunge right into the middle of the cascades. It's hard to describe, but pretty cool to see. While not a major waterfall, this one is not too much further downstream from Middle Pyramid Creek Falls, so if you visit that one, it's probably worth the extra effort to check this one out as well.
