Hike Directions: You’re going to have to hike the Upper Whitewater River downstream from the upper access off Heady Mountain Road. This is the first waterfall upstream of Bedrock Betty Falls and to get to Exit Falls, you have to come up from Bedrock Betty. There is a defined trail leading between the falls, making this an easy hike. This is the lower end of the slot canyon where the Whitewater River emerges after about 100 yards in the narrow chasm. There is a waterfall above this called Little Canyon Falls than I did not visit on this trip. Further upstream is Sculpted Falls, also omitted on this venture.
