Scramble to Fall Creek Falls (Stella Falls)

Rate this Adventure Washington "Stella" Falls

Added by

Short roadside scramble to a beautiful waterfall.

From Interstate 5 in Kelso, exit onto Highway 4 and follow it west towards Cathlamet and Long Beach for about 11.3 miles. A quarter mile east of the town of Stella is Fall Creek, with Fall Creek Falls, or Stella Falls as it is sometimes called, visible from the highway. Watch for the falls through the trees on the north side of the road. If you cross Germany Creek you've got about 4/10ths of a mile too far. There's enough room to park safely along the highway for maybe 2 cars. From there scramble 100 feet down to the base of the 51 foot falls.

Washington / Ladder Creek Falls Trailhead

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.
