Best Waterfalls in Washington

My Favorites So Far

Panther Creek Falls

I love the location of this waterfall. I saw it in the middle of winter. It was snowing and everything was covered in white as this waterfall trickled down a rock wall high up in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. This waterfall is located near the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and the whole area is gorgeous!

You can also hike to the bottom of this; it's not difficult, it was just too slippery for us at that time but I recommend it!

Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls in located in the small city of Snoqualmie, clearly, but it is quite the sight. I've heard there are ways to get to the bottom, which would be amazing.

Rocky Brook Falls

This is my current favorite waterfall in Washington. It is located on the Hood Canal near the Olympic National Forest, an area full of beautiful waterfalls, but this one is well hidden and contains only a small sign you couldn't see from the road. It's about a quarter mile, easy hike to the waterfall and you can get right up to it and even climb up it a bit!

There is also a small pool at the bottom that we were pleased to jump off rocks into. :)

Marymere Falls

The area in which this waterfall is is spectacular. Near the Olympic National Forest and the ever-so-blue Lake Crescent, you'll find a short half-mile hike to find this waterfall. I think it's the location that makes this waterfall stand out to me.

Lower Lewis Falls

Unfortunately, I have yet to see this waterfall, though it's currently number one on my list in Washington. This spectacular waterfall is one of the many waterfalls in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest; it is not a waterfall that is right off the side of the road by any means, it is deep into this forest.

Palouse Falls

This waterfall is massive! The biggest in Washington I'm pretty damn sure! You can see the waterfall from the parking lot, it pours into a giant crater so perfectly. You are able to hike along the rock sides and where the river flows before it leaves down the waterfall. You can even climb dangerously along the rocks where the waterfall falls off the giant ledge. There is also a small path to get down to the bottom; it looks a little sketchy, we didn't do it but it would be an amazing view!
