Lewis River Falls and Trail

Hear the water plunging over five spectacular waterfalls as you follow this 14.4-mile trail. In the heart of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, the Lewis River forever flows, cascades, drops, and carves into the landscape.  A series of falls is accessible along Forest Road 90.

As you travel upstream, stop at each of the aptly-named Lower, Middle, and Upper Lewis Falls locations.  Each is just a short walk from parking facilities.  Make a stop at Big Creek Falls for an interpretive trail takes you through a majestic old-growth stand, as falls comes thundering down to meet the Lewis River.  As you tour the falls, interpretive panels teach the visitor about water conservation, aquatic ecosystems, Native American inhabitants, and old-growth forests to name just a few.  Many sites have restroom facilities to help preserve fragile ecosystems.
