Make no mistake about it. Onion Creek Falls in El Dorado County is a spectacular, huge, waterfall. I roughly estimate it crashes 300 ft. down into Silver Creek above Camino Reservoir. If you could get up close to it, I would give it a "9" or a "10" ranking. The problem, though, is that you cannot get to it, and you cannot even get a decent view of it.
