The Starvation Creek Falls drops 141ft down into a naturally formed bowl, cascading past a wooded picnic area and onto the Columbia River. The falls are one of the easiest falls to access in the Columbia River Gorge along with Multnomah Falls, but are far less Crowded. The short 300ft walk from the Starvation Creek State Park parking lot is easily tranversable by anyone and disability accomodations have been recently added. The falls are very family friendly and are a great place to stop for a picnic.

Parking can be challenging to find at peak times, as the Park grants access to many trails, leading to both Mt. Defiance, as well as the Starvation Ridge Trails.

All in all its a stunning spot that is often overlooked and is a great addition to any outing if you want a little something extra when visiting the Columbia River Gorge, for very little extra time spent.

Not one of the most photogenic falls in The Gorge but still worth a stop to see.
