The Melakwa Lake Trail is a 4.5-mile-long hike uphill across a ridge to a small lake. An unofficial but far more popular trail is upstream Denny Creek along the dry rocks. In fact, most neo-hikers stop at the first waterfall sliding down a polished rocky bed, known as Denny Creek water slide. Others scale the first waterfall and continue. The second waterfall may seem tall, but the way up is relatively easy and a user-maintained trail can be used an alternative to descent. We only walked as far as the fourth waterfall, but more experienced climbers may choose to scale that one as well.
