Height and type: Approximately 12-15 foot segmented block falls, with a smaller falls in front.

Water body: Tide Creek

Access: There is no access at this time without the express permission of the property owners. The road approaching the area is a private road for community residents only, the land is private, and the land on the other side is now private Weyerhaeuser lease land that can only be entered by the specific lease holders.

Property status: private

Notable Wildlife: pileated woodpeckers, northern red-legged frogs, woodland salamanders, terrestrial mollusks

Interesting History: In the early 1900s Tide Creek was a more notable community, with its own post office, railway station, and ferry terminal. All of those were well downstream of the falls, however.

A bridge over Tide Creek built for the Columbia River Highway in 1920 still exists today.
