Unfortunately, the best waterfall in the Davis Creek drainage is not accessible to the vast majority of visitors because of its location in a dangerous slot canyon. Don't fret, however, this gorgeous display acts as a great consolation prize. Dropping about 80 feet over a mossy cliff within a dark, verdant grotto, Davis Mountain Falls provides one of the best compositions for photography in the area. Were it not for a pair of trees, the falls would be completely visible from the road. Fortunately a short boot path has been trod to the bottom of the falls. The Gifford Pinchot National Forest lists this as one of the more significant waterfalls in the area on their website, but oddly don't mention the falls on Davis Creek itself a short distance downstream.
- Davis Mountain Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
Davis Creek and its canyon are located between Packwood and Randle, just off of US 12, south of Mt. Rainier. Drive west from Packwood for about 10 miles, or east from Randle for about 7 Â½ miles to Davis Creek Road. Follow Davis Creek road for a short distance to Forest Service Road # 63 immediately west of the Davis Creek bridge. Follow Road 63 for about 3 miles to where the falls can be seen on the right. A rough path climbs up to the bottom of the falls.
