Route/Trail notes

A detailed description of the walk!

Follow the fire trail over Mount Barney Creek then continue on it as it follows Paddy's Gully. Before the fire trail begins to rise in a series of switchbacks take the path which branches off to the right and quickly deposits you into the creek bed. From here rock hop up the creek until you reach the falls. You can retrace your steps to the car or you can cut out of the gully by ascending up the reasonably step Southwestern side. When you reach the top of the ridge good views can be found back into the gully and North to Mount Maroon and after that there are more views East and out to Mount Barney. From here rejoin the fire trail following it back down the switch backs passing the turn off you took earlier and following it the rest of the way out.
