Big Granite Creek Falls
Big Granite Creek Falls drops along Big Granite Creek, just before it dumps into the North Fork of the American River. Unfortunately, the American River Trail does not go down to the river at this point, and you cannot get down to the river to get a closer look at this exciting waterfall, unless you scramble down off the trail. This photo was taken with high zoom from very high up along the American River Trail. Nonetheless, the waterfall is incredibly beautiful. Next time we are in this area, our goal will be to get down to the river for a close-up look at it.
