At Elowah Falls, McCord Creek crashes into a huge amphitheater made up of several distinct lava flows. This is a fairly easy hike, appropriate for most beginners, leading to a 289-foot waterfall. There is a small amount of climbing involved, with a summit in the middle of the hike. Consider combining this hike with Upper McCord Creek Falls. Follow the trail from the parking area up to junction, veer left to lower trail.
