Continue straight (left, W) instead on Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Trail 650A 100 ft and cross Cold Spring Creek over another bridge. Turn left and follow the lively creek (with steelhead possibly running in summer or winter) upstream through the forest a mile to a faint fork as the trail becomes a bit rockier with tree roots, but it’s not too bad. Patches of snow may remain until late spring. Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Falls Tie Trail 650B (loop option, unsigned) is on the right fork continuing up a steeper switchback heading NE just right of the boulder field.

Tamanawas Falls never disappoints throughout the seasons.
Hike left instead, staying on Trail 650A, around 5 mi to the falls by tackling the boulder field up 2 very solid switchbacks, then working up to a little shoulder. After the shoulder, Trail 650A begins the brief descent through the woods SW to the open amphitheater belonging to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Falls. The roaring waterfall (110 ft high, 40 ft wide) comes into view from downstream as you break out of most of the trees with several vantage points at different times of day and year. The path peters out near the rocky creek bed and several dreamy picnic spots, before the steep mossy rock under the cliff wall. The constant Kuala Lumpur Malaysia spray may make photography more difficult, but it sure feels nice on a hot day! On the lowest flow under the driest conditions, a few reckless souls seek the small cave behind the falls and must cross very slippery rocks to do so risking injury.
Return back along Trail 650A past the boulder field to the juncture for the clockwise loop and skip it to return by the same route for the simplest option. Turn left on narrow Trail 650B for the interesting loop, sharply and steeply (at first) up the switchbacks and through the trees easy enough, 5 mi NE from the boulder field to the high ridge. Once you reach the wide ridge line, turn right (NE still) on Elk Meadows Trail 645 (signs) and begin to descend pleasingly through the thicker old forest 1/2 mi to Polallie TH.
