    (5.7 mi)
  2. Turn right onto E 1400 N/Cave Falls Rd
    Continue to follow Cave Falls Rd
    (15.0 mi)
  3. Turn right onto Goose Lake Rd/NF-124 (2.6 mi)
  4. Continue onto Wyoming Creek Rd (486 ft)
or

Take Cave Falls road for 15 miles, then turn right on Goose Lake Road. After about 2.5 miles, there will be a small turnoff to the left. If the road comes to an abrubt end, you've barely missed the turn. Go back around the corner and you'll find it. That small road will take you down to Fall River, then upstream to the falls. You'll need good clearance and possibly 4-wheel drive once you leave Goose Lake Road. If it gets too much for your vehicle, it's also a great hike. You can park right next to the falls. Please be respectful of the land.
