Wrong Way

It's best not to hike up the creek for many reasons which I will not go into but to really capture the Falls, you need to cross Burstarse Creek and follow the PCT past Ugly Creek up to the switchback then follow the use trail to the Upper Falls and although called the Upper Falls, they are actually in the middle of both the Upper and Lower. The PCT route is the most common, easiest, and safest way to get there. There is also an Upper Upper Falls too. On a normal snowy winter, microspikes are a life savor crossing the creeks and getting to the Falls.
