If good rains precede this hike, then the falls for which this Creek are named should be spectacular.

We will set up a car shuttle to attempt this point-to-point.

We will attempt the old Fall Creek Trail, starting from a little away from Hidden Springs Picnic Area. The trail traverses around before descended into Fall Canyon near an old campground. We will cross the stream and climb up the fire-road to Big Tujunga Road (Due to parking restrictions, we park on Angeles Forest Highway).

There's a few points of interest at the canyon - depending on time and motivation we may spend a while exploring.

Peakbagger note: Falls Cyn Tr traverses a firebreak leading to obscure prominence point Pt 4408 (
