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.
