Upper Yucca Falls is the first of three waterfalls you will come to on this tributary of Rachel Creek. The Falls takes it’s name from the Yucca plants someone planted years ago at Yucca Falls, which is just downstream. The entirety of the hike is 3.7 miles and this takes you to all five waterfalls and back out via a old road I happened upon during my visit. If you’re going to Upper Yucca falls, you will likely want to see all this small area has to offer since all the falls are within 0.3 of a mile.
The complete hike can be found on the listing for Middle Rachel Creek Falls which is the last of the five falls you will see on this expedition.
