Third Creek Falls is a small 24 ft. falls near Incline Village. It is a small drainage but very pretty.

From the parking area, start walking on the trail up the mountain. After a short distance there is a side trail over to the creek. It is a bit steep to get right down to the creek, but not too difficult. Just be careful.

This falls is actually not on Third Creek, it is on a small unnamed tributary immediately upstream from the confluence of Third Creek, but is close enough to it so we will call it Third Creek Falls anyway.

I explored this creek more upstream thinking there should be more waterfalls on this creek. I went quite aways up, but I found none. Far up the mountain, I saw what was possibly a bigger waterfall, but there would be no possible way to get up that far.
