After camping off of FR200 I wanted a quick, easy hike before heading back to the valley. I’d had a leisurely morning laying in the back of Tessa reading, so I was a tad short on time. I wanted solitude so I figured I’d head over to Gordon Creek Falls for a bit, since nobody goes to dry waterfalls, lol! (Also I secretly just wanted to drive down the road after having to hike it, or ride with someone else in the past. )

The road: Dry, rutted mud. Hey, at least it was dry because that road was probably a mess a few weeks ago. The creek crossing is dry (both of them). I opted to park Tessa just before the 2nd creek crossing because I figured I could be nice to her and get a few extra steps for myself. Alas, I’m glad I had parked there because there were two people camping with a whole big setup where I’d have parked. I only saw them and one other couple hiking the road as I was driving in.

The creek bed is pretty much completely dry in the beginning but there are still some smaller pools of water along the way to the falls. The little falls was dripping, and as expected the main falls was also dry/barely dripping. I climbed down and had lunch on the beach and relaxed for a bit before heading back the way I came. We really need rain!
