Scramble to Steep Creek Falls

Added by Angela Service

Take a short Scramble from the Road down to this scenic waterfall. Bring your camera for amazing shots and do a little exploring behind the waterfall.

Steep Creek Falls is located about 5 miles from the small town of Stevenson. Take Highway 14 one mile west of Stevenson to Rock Creek Drive and turn north, passing the Skamania Lodge and Resort. Turn left onto Ryan Allen Road and follow it for about a mile, then turn left onto Red Bluff Road. Follow this gravel, pothole road 5 1½ miles to a bridge crossing Rock Creek. Find a place to pull off and scramble down the side of the wooden bridge to the falls below.

Beautiful

Absolutely stunning! This place was amazing, I would love to go back in the summer to swim. Tons of little falls on the side falling off of the cliffs, and Steep Creek Falls was amazing in its self! I've never seen anything like it! This is a must do.
