DIRECTIONS - From Lower Twist Falls, continue along the bootpath, climbing steeply around the lower falls. Twist Falls is only a couple hundred feet upstream. It’s difficult to get a clear view of the falls from the bootpath side, but the river was running too high to cross on my visit.

Twist Falls is an interesting multi-tiered waterfall located on the inlet of Lake Dorothy. The falls drop a total of 104’ in three tiers: a 54’ horsetail, a cool 24’ tall twisting plunge that gives the falls its name, and a 26’ finale. While not a tremendous waterfall, this is a cool spot, located just off a popular trail, and yet it has remained relatively unknown.
