55 foot Moose Creek Falls is on the northern slopes of Whitehorse Mountain toward Whitehorse Ridge.  The upper segments of the waterfall cascade down about 15' then open up to a fan of about 30'.  Moose Creek gets its name from the old Moose placer mining claims further down stream.

The next drop of Moose Creek Falls obscured by several trees that have come down over the years during heavy snows & winter storms.  Midsummer a couple of these old snags are home to the American Dipper.

To get to Moose Creek Falls involves crossing private property or a straight up bushwhack of about 2 miles.  The waterfall is located on Whitehorse Ridge fed by the constant snow-melt from the glaciers of Whitehorse Mountain.
