Truly one of the megastars of southwest Washington, the list of superlatives that have been used to describe Falls Creek Falls is indeed a long one. It doesn’t matter that it’s not possible to see all 335 feet of the three-tiered monster at the same time. The size, power, and visual appeal of Falls Creek Falls are something to behold, whether you’re gazing at the top tier or the bottom two. Combine the fact that there are a number of good spots from which to sit and take in the falls with the easy-to-digest length of 3.2 total miles, and you have a classic day hike perfect for the family or to show off to out-of-towners.
