My final stop on Tuesday was Iron Creek Falls. I had passed the sign for it on the way to Windy Ridge, and figured I could probably handle a 500-foot detour to one more waterfall on my way back to the Iron Creek Campground. 

The trail is wide and easy to follow, though past the overlook, the creek is clearly undercutting the banks, so head down to the water at your own risk. 

Someone has put up a "handrail", which is really just flagging looped around upright poles. It doesn't provide much purchase to hold onto.
