Old Dam Falls, my name for it, is 0.1 miles into the Basin Creek Trail hike. I didn’t include it because it’s some huge waterfall, but I think from a historical standpoint it should be included. These kinds of old dams are all over the mountains. I can devote one page to each of the ones I visit. You can read about the entire Basin Creek hike here: Upper Basin Creek Falls.
