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.

You can stat this adventure at one of two trailheads. I suggest using the lower of the two. The start of the trail ascends through a forest of old growth pines with periodic views of Mt Washington.
