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.

This is a rather long out and back, however, it can also be done as a backpack, which would give you more time to explore the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which is highlighted in other Adventures.
