Dry Meadow Creek

About Dry Meadow Creek

Dry Meadow Creek is a must-make stop if you have the time and you have minimal Carson Falls anxiety. There are two excellent activities here. The first is exploring the Seven Teacups, which is a series of cascading waterfalls into ‘teacup’ like pools. Getting to the Seven Teacups requires a challenging scramble, so you should budget at least an hour for this stop if you plan on exploring the waterfalls.

The other activity requires far less time and is tons of fun, which is riding the waterslide into the river. At the confluence of Dry Meadow Creek and the Forks, the water cascades down a steep granite face, giving you an excellent waterslide feature. Photos below of both the waterslide and Seven Teacups.
