This stunning waterfall is one of several geologic features in this area. This waterfall was created as a result of two different rock layers underneath the creek that eroded at different times. Rock beneath the waterfall (which is in the Wind River formation) eroded much faster than the rock near the Wind River. As a result, the creek has moved through the Wind River Formation much quicker and formed a cliff or "knickpoint," creating the waterfall.
The waterfall can be reached from a trail that begins from the Falls Campground. Along that trail you can also get a great view of the Upper Wind River valley and even see into the Fitzpatrick Wilderness on the southeast horizon. To the north and northeast are the geological features of Pinnacle Buttes and Breccia Cliffs, respectively.
