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. It was 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: There is no hike required the fall is right beside the road. There are several pull offs.
Location: Located south of Mammoth, on the east side of the road in the Golden Gate area.
