  • Type: Plunge/Horsetail/Fan
  • Height: 47 feet
  • Stream: Glen Creek
  • Name, origin: Park Superintendent P. W. Norris named this falls in 1879.1
  • Fun Facts: I have seen mountain goats in the hills above these falls. They were a family unit with a young one. It was fun watching them for several weeks before they moved on. Check out a picture of the mountain goat here. In the late spring early summer, look for white marks on the side of the cliff. That could indicate the nest of a raven family.
  • Hike: No hike is required; the fall is beside the road.
  • Location: Located south of Mammoth, on the east side of the road in the Golden Gate area.
