Palouse Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Falling 186 feet into a huge basalt punchbowl canyon below, it’s no wonder that dramatic Palouse Falls is Washington State’s official state waterfall. While anyone can make it to the paved, handicapped- accessible main overlook across from the falls, hikers can explore a few extended walks nearby as well.

Palouse Falls, tucked into Eastern Washington’s high desert plateau and with a climate far different from Seattle and environs, may not be on the way to anywhere else, but stopping for an afternoon or camping there overnight is a classic Northwest experience. Pair it with a drive through the rolling, multicolored agricultural fields around the nearby towns of Colfax, Steptoe, and Palouse for a weekend’s worth of stunning scenic delights."
