Benham Falls was a pretty 30-foot tall, two stepped waterfall hidden within a little gorge adjacent to Forest Road 25 near Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Benham Creek has a long history of being difficult for road engineers to deal with, having washed out several bridges in the past. During the floods of January 2009, a huge landslide destroyed the bridge over Benham Creek and completely buried the falls and gorge. The creek may have actually been rerouted outside of the gorge above where the falls used to occur and depending on how the land shifts and settles in the future, a larger waterfall might re-form over the cliffs that lined the gorge below the falls, but it will probably be a couple years before the land is stabilized and the road is rebuilt to allow access.
- Benham Falls is the name of this waterfall.
Benham Falls was found adjacent to the bridge over Benham Creek just under 13 miles south of Highway 12 in Randle along FR 25. The road is presumably closed before Benham Creek due to the destruction of the bridge and will be fore the foreseeable future.
