These falls are another set you must see. It is an easy walk to them. What makes it great is the lack of crowds. Worth a stop.

We missed it the first time we drove by, but found it the second time. It is literally right beside the road. Limited parking no matter which direction you come from. We had a little one with us so a bit dangerous with the spacing...More

Not much parking for this waterfall, but worth the short hike down to the base of the falls. Loved stopping at all the falls along the highway and each one so different.

After you cross the Shepperd's Dell bridge (heading east), pull off to the right side and walk back to the bridge. The falls are viewable from the bridge or you walk down a short trail to get a better view. Very easily accessible.

This was the fourth waterfall we came upon during our drive though the Columbia River Gorge. It was pretty but you need to hike farther to see it better.

A very short walk to see the falls but worth the stop. Very small falls but beautiful. It's an enjoyable experience in the Gorge.

This one is a nice quick stop. Definitely worth the short 5 minute paved walk. You can look back at the bridge, which is as beautiful as the falls itself.
