Iron Creek Falls
   Skamania County, Washington

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

Iron Creek forms one of the prettier waterfalls in the area as it sluices through a channeled cliff and shoots powerfully into a large blue pool before fanning out over gravel bars and entering a small, shallow gorge just downstream. While the falls are quite powerful in the early summer, they become tame and quite photogenic as the year progresses. This is a perfect place to bring the kids to splash around and play in the creek.
