About Falls Creek Falls
Falls Creek Falls was kind of an accidental waterfall that I stumbled across while driving towards Stevens Canyon from the Ohanapecosh Entrance in Mt Rainier National Park.
In fact, I almost skipped stopping for this 30ft waterfall thinking that it was some miscellaneous roadside waterfall that we typically take for granted.
But given the presence of many vehicles surrounding the footbridge spanning Falls Creek, I figured that I mind as well stop and take a look.
That said, I suspect that most of the vehicles parked here actually pursued other hiking trails (e.g. the Grove of the Patriarchs) in the eastern side of Mt Rainier.
Aside from that, there’s not much more I can say about this short waterfall other than I counted more than one occasion where drivers would slowly roll on the road bridge to allow passengers to take photos while passing by.
Falls Creek Falls resides in Mt Rainier National Park near Packwood in Lewis County, Washington. It is administered by the National Park Service. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website.
The bridge over Falls Creek in front of the Falls Creek Falls was about 6 miles along the Stevens Canyon Road from the US12 junction.
The Stevens Canyon Road departure point from the US12 (and towards the Ohanapecosh Entrance to Mt Rainier National Park) was about 7 miles northeast of Packwood.
For geographical context, Packwood is about 73 miles (about 90 minutes drive) west of Yakima, 70 miles (under 2 hours drive) south of Puyallup, 108 miles (over 2 hours drive) south of Seattle, and 141 miles (over 2 hours drive) northeast of Portland, Oregon.
