I love this steep mountainside cascade of waterfalls. I have shot more pictures of these falls than anywhere else. I returned there in 2013. This time I ascended beyond the falls to Upper Mohawk lake which is incredibly beautiful. The few mining relics are interesting as well.

Thanks for this website for the great waterfall hike suggestions; thank you Karen!

Karen's reply: You are quite welcome Doug :-). And if you have the time, I would love to see some of your pictures of Continental Falls here, and I think other people would too. Have fun the next time you go there :-).

Karen's updated reply: Thanks Doug, for sending me these pictures...they look great :-), and make me want to go back. Maybe I'll go back towards the beginning of next season, when it would probably be runnng better than it is now. Thanks again :-).

Continental Falls
by: Doug Thomas

I hiked up to Continental Falls this summer (2010). It was a challenging hike, the kind that I seek. Plus my photography of the falls turned out really well, considering I was experimenting with photographing the falls. Some trails are not well marked so a topo map would be recommended.

This was one of the best hikes I've taken this year, thanks to this website! I'm looking for more waterfall hikes for next summer!
