Burstarse Falls
waterfall on Burstarse Creek

narrow gorge below upper Burstarse Falls

Due to the overall steepness of the terrain throughout the Crags, the chances of finding impressive waterfalls on the creeks in the area are quite high. There are some nice ones in the upper part of Root Creek [see the Root Creek page], but before the water drops in late Summer, the best I've seen are on Burstarse Creek. There's a nice one just a few minutes hike upstream from the Pacific Crest Trail crossing [see the Burstarse Creek page], but if you continue up the right side of the creek on a faint trail you'll come to the falls shown below. Topo maps show another "falls" even farther upstream but I haven't been up there yet.
