Copied from www.waterfallswest.com: "Here is one waterfall with many names: Fairy Falls, Shingle Falls, Beale Falls, Dry Creek Falls. It is shown on the topo maps as Shingle Falls. The local name for the waterfall appears to be Fairy Falls. Brown calls it Dry Creek Falls in her waterfalls book, as the waterfall is along Dry Creek.
Nonetheless, this is a very pleasant, and easy walk through the countryside, to a very pretty waterfall, nestled in a little canyon. There is a Lower Fairy Falls, about 30 feet high, but you will need to scramble along the rocks to get a good view. Upper Fairy Falls is more impressive, just a short ways upstream. Hike down the steep bank to the base of the falls and have lunch on the rocks."
