Lucia Falls
   Clark County, Washington

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

Lucia Falls is one of five named waterfalls along the East Fork Lewis River near Battle Ground. The falls drop about 15 feet over a channeled bedrock dam into a rather sizable pool. When the river runs low in the summer the falls are quite lackluster but during the wet season the river swells such that this waterfall can be quite impressive for its size.
