Hike Description

Hike Description

Wolf Creek Falls is a small waterfall located in Banning State Park. This picturesque waterfall drops 12 feet where spring-fed Wolf Creek meets the Kettle River. Once you have entered the park, follow signs toward the campground. Once the drive opens up, there will be a small parking lot on the left-hand side with the trailhead to your left.

The most direct route to the falls is the Wolf Creek Trail. You can loop back using the same route or explore more by taking High Bluff Trail on the way back. The flat dirt path is an easy walk through the woods, where you'll find the forest ground covered in trilliums during the spring. Once the trail opens up into the open forest, the trail will branch off and blend in with surroundings. Just follow the sounds and people to the river.
