Upper Lewis River Falls Washington

Upper Lewis River Falls Hike Washington

While technically not the real upper waterfall of the Lewis River, Upper Lewis River Falls is the tallest of the four major falls on this section of the river. Here the Lewis encounters a strangely squared sheet of basalt, sheets out over the flat rock allowing a small portion of the river to plunge a sheer 58 feet over the overhanging cliff, but the majority of the water gathers in a narrow trough and stair-steps to the pool below. The falls can vary from a solid curtain of pure roar to being isolated in the narrow channel on the left side, leaving the more vertical part of the falls dry. In addition to being the largest of the four falls, this is also the most isolated.
