This creek holds the record in our book for the greatest quantity and variety of waterfalls in our area.

Because of the delicate nature of the gully and the rare plant life found there, it is on our "Shh!" list. We have changed the name to protect the irreplaceable.



This is a moderately difficult hike because of the length (1.5 miles) and elevation gain (600 ft) complicated by narrow width and vertical cliffs for most of the way. In the Spring, or after a rain, it would be rated as difficult to dangerous.


This is a magical place with one waterfall after another for a total of 16 to 27 (depending on how you count). The smallest waterfalls are 3 to 4 feet and the highest 20 to 30 feet.

Each waterfall is in its own garden-like setting with the bends in the walls of the gully revealing them only one at a time. The variety of settings, configurations, lighting, and vegetation is astounding.

The ersatz name of this creek was suggested by a geologist friend. "Enechelon" refers to a geologic feature that follows a zigzag fault pattern.
