Babyshoe Falls isn't exactly grandiose, or even a second rate attraction for that matter, but it is quite indicative of the quality of waterfalls found in the area around Mount Adams. This small waterfall drains a small marsh on the south side of Babyshoe Pass, only about four tenths of a square mile of land, but the small stream has cut a rather notable gorge where the falls plunge down to the Lewis River. During the late summer months the falls are typically dry, but quickly come back to life after prolonged rain or snow melt. Since the falls are visible from the road, you'll be able to get a pretty good idea of whether it stands up to your personal test of quality. Chances are it probably won't be of interest to anyone other than waterfall hunters.
Nearby where the Lewis River is crossed by Forest Service Road 23 is a small waterfall which had been previously referred to as Wooden Arch Falls for the arched bridge which stands above it. We surveyed this waterfall in 2011 and found it to be well under our height requirement and have removed it from the database accordingly. While the volume is greater than Babyshoe Falls, Wooden Arch is a very minor waterfall and not likely interesting to any other than diehard waterfall hunters.
- Babyshoe Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
Babyshoe Falls can be seen along FR 23, just under 2 miles north of the intersection of roads 23 and 90 in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. This works out to be about 35 miles south of Randle or 22 miles north of Trout Lake.
