Features to Experience
The parking lot that provides access to the waterfall is easily filled during the summer months and on weekends.
How to Access
A special parking lot for Cucumber Falls can be found along SR 2019. A short walk leads to the rim of the gorge.
Continuing down a trail and more man made steps allows you to descend to an area of large broken rocks made wet by water dripping from the overhanging ceiling of sandstone above, and following along the cliff will allow you to get a view of the waterfall from the side. Now the falls almost resembles a bright shower falling down into what feels like a dark cavern that Cucumber Gorge often resembles. The fresh scents of moss, hemlocks, and mountain water is particularly fresh on a humid morning. In the fall the smell of fallen leaves instead dominates the atmosphere.
