Visited Burstarse Falls again for the first time this season, and happy to say we finally made it to the upper falls! Very beautiful hike, and the upper falls are by far the tallest--falling from a ridge. Finally got close enough for some awesome photos!

Went on the same hike as last weekend to Burstarse Falls...a lot has changed in one week! The falls were now partially frozen, which was pretty awesome to see. Glad I went back again. Also, someone I hiked with brought a dog who loved the hike as well. I hope to adopt a dog of my own that will enjoy hiking.

The rain stopped by noon today in Castella, so it was a great time to hike to Burstarse Falls. The parking lot at Dog trailhead is large, and unfortunately had some trash througout. But that's just the parking lot, where some people go to shoot. Dog Trail and the PCT was pristine. The PCT passed several creeks that had plenty of water flowing from recent precipitation. There were tiny patches of snow on the ground, but not many. I passed Popcorn Springs, and soon reached Burstarse Creek which had a small wooden sign attached to a tree marking the creek. There isn't much of a trail up the canyon along the creek, but there is a steep path on the east side of the creek to reach the lower falls. The lower falls are about 25 feet tall, with plenty of water flowing at this time. I was able to continue up past these falls before having to cross to the west side of the creek, and eventually had an obstructed view of the grand Burstarse Falls which are about two or three times taller than the lower falls. Falling right off the edge of a cliff down to the creek. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get much closer at the time, the rocks were slippery and I didn't want to risk falling in or getting hurt. Nature wins this time, so I'll have to go back again more prepared to get the full view of the upper falls.
