Lower Lewis Falls
Water is abundant in the Columbia River Gorge and especially in Skamania County. And when it is in the form of waterfalls, it is a lovely spectacle to behold. Hiking to these hidden jewels is part of the fun. Lower Lewis Falls is one of the most accessible and is definitely worth the detour away from the banks of the Columbia.
The Lower Lewis River Falls are spectacular. At 43 feet high and 200 feet across, they are larger in person than photos may lead you to believe. On the left side is a churning trough which gathers most of the water flow, and there are several viewpoints from which to capture the scene.
To get there: From Highway 30, take the Curly Creek cutoff and turn north on Lewis River Road No. 90. Follow the signs to the Lewis River Campground.
