Hike Description

See the Hike Description for West Fork Falls.


Epiphyte Falls is on one of the feeder branches that create West Fork Campbell Creek. At over 5,000 feet in elevation, it’s among the highest waterfalls in the state. It’s a long, cascading falls in a particularly scenic forest setting. At normal and low flows, the creek goes underground at the base of the falls. Growing among the trees are clusters of epiphytic ferns, which give the waterfall its name.
