My first visit up to Grant Falls!
Grant Creek Trail :next: Grant Creek Canyon :next: Grant Falls.
We nailed this one, Grant/Post creek was flowing as strong as I have ever seen it making for both a good thing and bad. The good was big water flow, big sounds & great waterfalls along the entire trail up. The bad was the 3 mandatory creek crossings to get to the falls. The flow of the first crossing convinced me it would just be better to not mess around with shoe & sock removals and just plow through. My partners chose to skip this idea and backtrack to another area to hike, I understood ..... cold wet feet hiking sucks!
So solo I pressed on with soaked shoes, 2 more crossings and up Grant Creek Canyon. I then made the mile climb up to the big falls cold, wet and now in light falling snow ..... and it was worth it, the falls were Awesome!
Back down at Grant Creek, I spent a much needed 1/2 hour refueling and thawing out my piggies over a quick fire.
Reunited with my partners down below and together we hiked back out to the FJ.
Grant Creek never disappoints and I now have a new favorite Graham waterfall!
Thank You Dave & Kathy :yr:

Note - FR 157 in has become a challenge to drive. Not quite 4x4 yet, but it requires very high clearance with patience.
