Here is a little gem just a few feet
of Forest Road #88. This trail was
built as a memorial to KC Langfield,
an old-time District Ranger. And
the falls was named after him.
The trail leaves the parking area
and parallels Mosquito Creek as it
drops on a long switchback to a
point near the base of the falls
where you can sit and enjoy the beauty.
A monument is along the trail in
memory of Mr. Langfield.
