Also known as Cliff Falls, this drop is a long, gentle cascade down a well-worn slab of granite nestled between huge cedars. The river breaks out in white foam on a few of the steeper pitches, but most of Forty-Foot Falls is more of a gentle slide than steep waterfall. There is a camping site right above the falls with a handy cedar bridge for crossing the deep, clear waters.
From Big Erick's Bridge head east down Erick's Road for 4 miles, turning left onto the Northwestern Road. Take this for 2.2 miles to a small, sandy area with relatively young pines stretching away to the right. Turn left here, driving past the Cliff Falls Hunting Club. After 1.5 miles bear right, staying with the river, and then park after an additional 1 mile. Park near the camping site and head downhill to the waterall.
