Dawson Falls, Clearwater
(4.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Embark on a short and easy, yet rewarding trail that leads to Dawson Falls. Bring your camera along to capture the lush wooded scenery at various points along your journey. A leisurely pace will take about one hour to the main attraction: an impressive cascade with a height of 20 m (66 ft) and width of 90 m (295 ft). If you want even quicker access to the falls, take tour bus, as the bus parking lot lies closer to the main attraction than the general parking lot. Add Dawson Falls and other attractions to your Clearwater trip itinerary using our Clearwater vacation builder.
