This is the final major waterfall along Twentytwo Creek, located almost immediately downstream from the footbridge on the Lake 22 trail. Mossy Rock Falls consists of 6 tiers of cascade and slide type waterfalls, totaling 145 feet in height in drops of 20, 17, 19, 12, 20 and 57 feet respectively. This series of falls isn't visible from the trail at all, but can be easily reached by a short bushwhack. The three upper most tiers are the easiest to see, while the fourth can be viewed from the side but the final two drops can only be seen from the bottom with fairly extensive bushwhacking and may require fording the creek multiple times (also note that private property adjoins the creek near the bottom of the falls).
- Mossy Rock Falls is the Proposed name of this waterfall.
Starting in the town of Granite Falls, drive east along the Mountain Loop Highway for 13 1/2 miles, or 2 1/2 miles passed the Verlot Ranger Station, to the signed Lake 22 trailhead. Park and start hiking along the trail to Lake 22. The trail climbs easily for 1/2 mile to a bridge spanning Twentytwo Creek. From the footbridge, looking downstream, you can see the brink of the falls. To reach the vantage I used to take this picture, backtrack down the trail for about 300 feet, to where a large chunk of bedrock is exposed on the left side of the trail. Find a faint route that heads towards the creek from here, and head towards the creek through the moderately open forest. The creek is reached in less than 200 feet, and a large open area at the bottom of the third tier is not hard to find. Heading further downstream should likely require significant bushwhacking not suitable for beginners.
