Description

Wolf Creek Falls truly a hidden gem in the woods of Banning State Park. It is only accessible on foot via trails with an amazing rocky terrain. It can be difficult to follow this trail in some of the more rocky areas. You'll be able to stand at the top of this waterfall right on the edge. No guard rails exist here so be careful!

Short Hike: From the parking area at Banning State Park hike southwest to Quarry Loop Trail, you need to take the northern side of Quarry Loop, then at a fork continue on Deadman Trail, this goes up a hill. Continue on Deadman Trail until the next junction, turn left onto High Bluff Trail. Follow High Bluff Trail until you reach Wolf Creek Trail and turn left. Continue south on Wolf Creek Trail, it can be difficult to follow Wolf Creek Trail closer to the falls due to the smooth rocky terrain. Continue south until you see a map sign, the top of Wolf Creek Falls is close by to the right. From here you should be able to see a trail leading to the side of the pool for a better view.

Fun hike from the campground. Some rocky climbing toward the falls.
