Big Falls

This waterfall reminds me a lot of Hunt-Fish Falls in the Wilson Creek Area, flipped so the water goes right instead of left to go over the bottom portion. Like Hunt-Fish, a small upper cascade goes through a small pool, around a curve, and over a smaller cascade into a bigger pool at the bottom.

These falls are accessed via a strenuous hike on the Big Snowbird Creek Trail.
