About Big Creek Falls
Big Creek Falls is a tall plunging waterfall, but while waterfalls like this one seem to be a dime a dozen in much of the Pacific Northwest, this had the feeling of more of an average waterfall.
That said, I’d bet that a waterfall like this would’ve gotten top billing if it was in say Southern California where such waterfalls are more rare.
Big Creek Falls possessed a thin singular plunge of water dropping 125ft, which we were able to view from a wooden deck providing the only full views that we could safely get.
The steep gorge only allowed us to look down at the waterfall with some trees and foliage growing into the line of sight.
During our visit, at least the tree obstructions weren’t so bad to the point of not being able to see a good chunk of the falls.
Anyways, there were other trails leading to other parts of the forest, but we didn’t bother doing them so we can’t really comment further on where they go.
All I know is that I don’t think there was a way to the base of the Big Creek Falls so there was really nothing more to our visit to keep us here any longer.
Overall, the walk to the falls itself was an easy 0.3 miles each way (or 0.6mi round trip).
Big Creek Falls resides in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest near Carson in Skamania County, Washington. It is administered by the USDA Forest Service. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website.
The car park for the trailhead of Big Creek Falls is roughly 10 minutes further east from the Curly Creek Falls turnoff along Route 90 (Lewis River Road) in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
It’s about 9 miles east of the Eagle Cliff Bridge and the car park is well signposted.
