This is private land and we only grant permitted access. With fire season we’re discouraging visitors.
Hatchet Creek Falls is on SCT property that we manage near the summit of Hatchet Creek in the Big Bend area north of Highway 299.
Our Fire patrolman checked on the falls last Sunday, July 5th, and estimated 150 to 200 people were recreating at the falls.
We have a permit only access system, but we’re not granting access as the trespass rate and fire hazard rate is too great right now.
