Also on Crane Creek, you will find Prospector Falls, Crane Creek FallsYellow Jacket FallsSecret Falls, and Lower Crane Creek Falls.

Parking for these falls would depend on how you approach the hike.  There is parking at Lower Crane Creek Falls, and there is parking at the main Winding Stairs trail (see Miuka Falls).  Crane Creek also flows underneath Highway 107, and there is a pull-off there.  All of the waterfalls on Crane Creek are extremely difficult to reach (with the exception of Lower Crane Creek Falls), and should not be attempted by anyone who does not have a lot of experience in off-trail hiking and map reading.
