Photograph Brooks Lake Creek Falls

0.5 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Christina Adele Warburg-Hon

Beautiful Waterfall just a short hike from the highway near Togwotee Pass.

This waterfall is is located at the Falls campground near Togwotee Pass. Located right off the highway it is a must stop on your way to Yellowstone or Grand Teton.

If you choose to camp here, the waterfall is literally right in your backyard, no hike necessary. However, if you aren't camping here, just park your car at the entrance to the campground and take the very short hike to check out these falls, at less than a half mile round trip, it is definitely worth it.

The creek is the same one that flows out of nearby Brooks Lake and is teeming with fish. While creek access below the falls is impossible due to barricades and landscape, fishing the creek above is extremely productive.

If you choose to visit in the winter, snowshoes may be necessary to access the waterfall, but the sight of it covered in snow is worth it.

Great hike and location

This is a great short hike to the waterfall. It is great to visit in all seasons. It is on the way from the Tetons to Yellowstone so it makes a great detour.
