Waterfalls are best seen when there has been very wet weather. These areas are very slippery when wet - wear proper footwear and gear, and use caution.

The main waterfall is what most people visit at Burden Falls, especially during really wet days. This waterfall should be reached by taking the trail down to the bottom of the creek NOT by climbing down the main bluff along the waterfall area (very dangerous). Please use extra caution when visiting Burden Falls and always use common sense, putting safety first above all other goals of the visit.
