School House Falls Trails

My daughter made a hike last weekend to the eastern falls behind the high school (Sir Alexander Mackenzie School).  You follow the boardwalk across the valley bottom and can either go right or left at the base of the mountain. The trail to the right is School House Falls, which is a moderate hike with a few steep sections coming out at a falls with a nice view. The other branch to the left (east) goes to a second falls further east which is quite a bit more difficult and has a few rock scramble sections.  I've never hiked that branch, but my daughter enjoyed it and successfully navigated the rocky steep parts the required a scramble.

It provides some nice views and in this photo she took looking towards the Salloomt River Valley to the north you can see some evindence of one of the forest fires from last summer.  It sounds like a difficult hike, so be forewarned.  Grizzly
