Rock Garden

Mystic Falls — Possibly also known as Woolsey Falls; located in upper Nankoweap below Woolsey Butte. This is not an easy place to get to because of the distance upstream from where Tilted Mesa Trail joins the creek. This is a really pleasant place with lush growth, and a strong and consistent flow from a fairly high falls. Dwelling sites and granaries can be found here also.

See notes on Exploration of Nankoweap Canyon.

Routes — Downstream to the Nankoweap Creek area. The so-called "Freefall" route (GCLH-I) goes down between Marion and Seiber (see Marion/Seiber Route).
