day hike to farmington creek falls - May 14, 2023

Let's go chasing waterfalls. Farmington Creek trail goes past several cars that have gone off the road above over the years. It leads to a waterfall that you can either climb to the top of a boulder to look down on the falls or rappel down a muddy slope to the base of the falls. The trail continues another half mile to a closed campground. If the road is still closed, we can hike down the road but if it's open,we will hike back the way we came to avoid getting sandblasted by other vehicles. Parking is scarce so we will start at the gate regardless.
