Starvation Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Starvation Creek Falls is a towering 227-foot waterfall with a developed viewing area and picnic tables. It’s a stately waterfall in and of itself, but there are also three other waterfalls in the vicinity that can all be visited by taking a wonderfully diverse loop hike. The area is also home to some interesting Columbia River Gorge history.The creek was originally named “Starveout Creek” due to an incident in 1884 when two trains were stranded by a blizzard in the area for two weeks. It all ended well, however, as nobody actually starved or died in the incident. Later, in 1939, the highway department constructed a massive metal weir and tunnel system to divert water from the top of what was once Warren Falls, through a massive basalt cliff to where it now spits out as Hole-in-the-Wall Falls."
