Moulton Falls
   Clark County, Washington

[ Physical Makeup ]  [ Pictures ]  [ Maps ]  [ Update History ]

Moulton Falls is the smallest of the five named waterfalls along the East Fork Lewis River, but also the easiest to access. The falls flume down a narrow trough, dropping over a series of potholes for about 10 vertical feet before the river mellows. When the East Fork runs high the falls swallow themselves up pretty well and it becomes more of a long rushing rapid than a waterfall, so if one is pressed for time, I would suggest skipping this waterfall and seeking out the better falls in the area.
