With six waterfalls of consequence along the route, this hike along the Lewis River is a must- do for any self- respecting waterfall lover. The three major cascades of the outing, Upper, Middle, and Lower Lewis River Falls, are all unique and truly headliners in their own right. The lower falls are one of the most accessible, photogenic, and visited falls in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. And justifiably so. Begin by making your way down to the water. There are a number of trails that depart from this area. Some official, some unofficial. Pick one and head down to the water. Once you join the main path paralleling the river, make a right and quickly arrive at Lower Lewis River Falls. There are a couple of viewpoints along this stretch that offer good views of the very photogenic cascade. Back on the main path, begin hiking upriver.
