“Tilltill Creek Falls” is a name I’m assigning to this unnamed waterfall on Tilltill Creek. It’s a welcome sight after a lengthy 2.5-mile stretch of dry hiking beyond Wapama Falls en route to Rancheria Falls.

The waterfall was particularly a welcome sight considering we had walked at least 5 miles to this point, and was fairly featureless for most of the stretch between Wapama Falls and this waterfall. Plus, the trail was climbing then descending, which further added to the fatigue factor.

With a satisfying flow and drop of 50ft, there were also smaller cascades further upstream above the falls, which we noticed from the footbridge. I was actually surprised that this waterfall wasn’t formally named given its flow and shape. In any case, don’t make the mistake of thinking this is Rancheria Falls. There was still a few more minutes of uphill hiking to get there!

This waterfall shares the same trailhead as Tueeulala Falls, Wapama Falls, and Rancheria Falls. See the Wapama Falls page for driving directions to the O’Shaughnessy Dam.

Also see the Wapama Falls page for the trail description from the dam up to Wapama Falls, then the Rancheria Falls page for the trail description beyond Wapama Falls, including this waterfall.

For some context, Hetch Hetchy would take us around 7 hours of driving from Los Angeles via Fresno, Oakhurst, Wawona, and Yosemite Valley. From San Francisco, it would take us roughly 4 hours of driving directly to Hetch Hetchy via Mather.
