The Forest Service has advertised Clarence Creek Falls by sign along the Nestucca River Road. What neither the Forest Service, nor the book A Waterfall Lover's Guide to the Pacific Northwest have done is identify which of the two waterfalls along Clarence Creek is intended of this designation. While it isn't totally clear which of the two falls the forest service is designating (this is the obvious target), the aforementioned book lists this 40 foot veil as Clarence Creek Falls. Because the two falls are located within about 500 feet of one another, we've designating them as lower and upper. Unfortunately neither fall is easy to see because there are no developed trails or viewpoints, but of the two, this one is easier to view - at least when the trees are not leafed out.
- Upper Clarence Creek Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
The falls are located off the Nestucca Byway, southeast of Tillamook. Follow US 101 14 miles south of Tillamook and turn left onto Blaine-Nestucca River Road. Follow this road for about 11 Â¾ miles. At this point, you should see signs for Clarence Creek Falls pointing towards the left, and directly across the road is another road that leads in the opposite direction. Turn left, following the sign, and continue uphill for almost a mile to a turnout at the top of the falls. Its possible to scramble to the base of the falls with caution, but it isn't recommended.
