Rose Valley Falls is a 300-foot, two-tiered waterfall. This hike follows Rose Valley Creek up a shady canyon to the base of the lower falls, a hundred-foot, multi-strand waterfall. The waterfall cascades over the sheer sandstone cliffs onto the rocks below in a cool, moss-covered grotto. This short, easy trail begins at the Rose Valley Campground at an elevation of 3,450 feet. There are also three lakes near the campground that are stocked with trout.
