Coal Creek Falls

Coal Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Water, water everywhere and quite a drop it takes! Cougar Mountain’s Coal Creek Falls is the primary attraction here, but it’s the water underfoot that really makes the area special. Such abundance helps keep the forest green and fragrant, with wildflowers in season— and abundant summer mosquitoes.

Come in November through May, when the nights are too cold for these pesky biters and the falls are full of runoff. In the spring you’ll find skunk cabbage, and through the early summer you’ll enjoy plump, juicy salmonberries. And at the end, you’ll enjoy the cool cascade of Coal Creek Falls."

Nice and easy trail. The waterfall itself is small, but still looked nice.
