Sunset Falls
   Skamania County, Washington

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

Sunset Falls is the uppermost of a series of small waterfalls along the East Fork of the Lewis River. The falls drop about 18 feet into a large pool - though the height can be reduced at lower flows - in anywhere from one to as many as four distinct channels when flows permit. This waterfall is a popular spot for local kayakers and the pool below the falls serves as a good swimming hole when the river is more placid in the summer.
