Exploring Alpine Falls
Alpine Falls is composed of three tiers.
The upper tier is maybe 7-8 feet tall.

Use an abundance of caution when navigating the slick, moss-covered rocks to get to this vantage point.
When you’ve taken in the sights here, it’s a simple matter of retracing your steps 0.7 miles back to your vehicle.
