Hidden Falls (Gorges)

Height: 10 feet
Trail Type: Dirt
Hike Distance:  1.2 miles
Difficulty: 7
Beauty: 1


Hidden Falls isn’t an official waterfall on the park map, but it’s a small detour along the way to Rainbow Falls. The falls drop over a slanted rock ledge for a few feet before continuing down the Thompson River.


Same as for Upper Bearwallow Falls. When you arrive at the visitor’s center, stay straight and drive to the obvious parking area on the left.

Hike Description:

The hike descends gradually down the ridge before coming to a T-junction. Going left takes you to a campsite. Turn right and follow the orange blazes to Rainbow Falls. You’ll eventually leave park property and enter National Forest property. That’s not a big deal, really.

The trail continues to descend until you cross a small creek and a campsite. Keep an eye out for one of the very obvious scramble paths leading down to the river. There will be a large boulder to stand on to view the falls upstream.
