Far upstream from Twin Falls and Huron Mountain Club property, the East Branch Salmon Trout River flows over worn bedrock between forested banks to form a scenic waterfall. A relatively easy walk north from Dodge City with a brief period of bushwhack takes you to this pretty, remote waterfall.

Note: this waterfall is also called Emerick Falls.

Directions

Head west on the Northwestern Road from the Triple A for 4.8 miles to Dodge City, a tiny hunting camp consisting of a few cabins. From here go north along the logging roads, either driving or walking along the dirt track, for 1.25 mile before cutting right near the broken rocks to the river. Follow the river a short distance upstream to the falls.

  • Jenn Jan 13, '18 Hmmmm, this fall has been dubbed Emerick Falls by Phil Stagg. I was sad when I couldn't find it in his book, and then there it was.
    • Jacob P Emerick Jan 22, '18 Phil Stagg is indeed a master of waterfalls, I just feel guilty referencing one that he named after me. I should add that in the notes - thank you Jenn.
