Start at the open space gate at the end of Cascade Drive, and walk on the wide trail, Cascade Fire Road, toward the information kiosk. Coast live oak and California bay trees cover an ascending hillside on the right, while San Anselmo Creek (also known as Cascade Creek) runs just off to the left. After about 140 feet of level walking, you'll pass a cypress huddled together with a huge cercocarpus, then reach an unsigned fork. Cascade Fire Road plunges straight ahead through Cascade Creek on the first of 4 fords, and High Water Trail offers a dry route when the creek is full. Bear right on High Water Trail. Hike for about 1 mile until you reach the falls. The area above is on the right just before you reach the falls.
