Lupin Falls

To Reach Lupin Falls, take the western mine road that follows buttle lake until you reach Lupin falls park. From here you can cross the road to the trailhead or go down the trail that takes you to buttle lake. The trailhead is right across the road. As soon as you start on the trail you will come to a junction. This is a loop trail so go either way. We always seem to stay right, as you head out you will follow a pretty little creek that has such a thick and green moss on its banks.

You wander along a very pleasant trail that leads you up a few switchbacks. All around you are a sweet-smelling forest of big trees, mainly fir and cedar. There are insect and bird sounds coming at you from both sides of the trail. As you top the last switchback, you start to see the falls through the trees. This is a beautiful waterfall.

My kids are all grown up now and still they love to come just as much as they did as kids, this is such an easy trail for young ones with waterfalls, bridges, and wildlife, a mecca for kids. Come for a walk and don’t forget your camera.
