Double Drop Falls can be viewed from the footbridge to your right looking upstream.
This parking area is also used to access three other waterfalls: Lyonsdale Falls, T-Bone Falls and Sliding Rock Falls
From the parking area, walk towards the footbridge. At some point in time this road was open for traffic to pass through. As you come upon the bridge you will see to your right the water coming down under the bridge to your left. This one is Lyonsdale Falls. Continue across the bridge, if you look straight ahead and to the left of the road you will see T-bone Falls in the distance. It is approximately .1 miles from parking to T-Bone Falls, and also the trail beginning for the next two waterfalls. At about .1 mile you will see a trail sign off to your right. The trail is easy to follow. There were a few muddy spots but nothing you can not get around. From the trail sign to the bottom of the next waterfall called Double Drop is about .2 miles. Continue along the trail an additional .2 miles, which brings you to Sliding Rock Falls. Total hike for this area is approximately .8 miles.
