Photograph Rock Creek Falls

Rate this Adventure Washington Rock Creek Falls Pull-Off

Added by

Rock Creek Falls is a beautiful waterfall off of highway 503 just north of Lake Merwin.

There is a large paved pull out on the side of the road right before the bridge making it easy for parking. The fenced area at the pull out is where you can view the falls from afar. The waterfall itself is nestled into the forest and is a little over a hundred feet tall. If you walk along the bridge you can access better views of the creek. This is a nice stop if you're on your way to Mount Saint Helens or another hike in the area.

For photographing the falls, I would recommend using a lens that is at least 80mm since the waterfall is a bit distant from the fenced area. I used a 11-16 wide angle lens which made my shots a little disappointing because the waterfall is crazy beautiful.

While not a hike in of itself, this walk to Ladder Creek Falls is still very enjoyable as you bound over a large suspension bridge, wander past smaller falls and overgrown garden steps, and get an up.
