We visited Screw Auger Falls with 18 family members as part of a family vacation. This place rocks! Not only is it gorgeous, the approach is through a fairly flat and wooded trail (sheltered from the sun). About 20 mins later, voila you are at the Falls.

The falls are awesome , cascading gently down the Bear River into huge ,deep rock formations from the Ice Age . They pick up speed as they race down the extremely deep part and the sight and sounds are amazing. It is a short, easy walk to the guard rails to gaze down into the depths of the formation but...

Started out enjoying the hike and the placards explaining the geology of the falls when my way ward wondering son jumped down onto a cliff and broke his foot. Remember the guide rails are there for a reason.

Whenever we travel that way, we always stop in at the Screw Auger Falls rest area. Just a few steps down a small path, and you are rewarded with some impressively carved sluice-ways.

This little picnic spot has a great pool for kids to wade with a series of small pools and falls in the stream. We almost always go on July fourth, but it's best on a really hot sunny day, where the shade and water access are appreciated. Picnic tables, BBQ grates, etc.
