Owl Creek Falls

Owl Creek Falls Rainier Highway 30 columbia county northwest oregon

Height and type: Multi-stage cascade falls that drops some 40 feet.

Water body: Owl Creek

Access: Can be seen from Highway 30 half a mile east of Rainier at 46.0851, -122.9207. There is a turnout to park on the opposite side of the highway about 100 yards east of the falls, but crossing the highway here is rather dangerous and not advised.

Property status: private

Notable Wildlife: woodland salamanders

Interesting History: There is a rumor that a flume may once have been attached to this creek just east of Rainier. I am waiting for further information.
