Perry Creek Falls is often the destination of choice for less active hikers along the Perry Creek Trail. Due to the way the trail approaches the falls, very few people actually get to see the falls - most just peer over the top into the dark grotto below. This is unfortunate, because Perry Creek Falls is exceptionally scenic. The falls consist of two tiers, a veiling fan shaped fall of about 40 feet, followed by a narrow plunge of 25 feet into a crack-gorge, framed on all sides by abundant mosses, ferns and a rather impressive stand of Cedar and Hemlock.
- Perry Creek Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
Drive east from Granite Falls along the Mountain Loop Highway for 26.5 miles to the signed Mount Dickerman Trailhead. The Perry Creek Trail starts here and heads northwest, paralleling the highway for a mile before intersecting the former road that led to the old Perry Creek trailhead. Perry Creek Falls is reached about 3.5 miles from the new trailhead (about 2 miles from the old trailhead). Views other the looking over the falls can be had by continuing upstream to the creek crossing (there is a large log fallen in the creek). Immediately after crossing the creek, head left into the woods and descend the open forest to the gorge across from the falls.
