Upper Beaver Falls in April

Height and type: 11-foot cascade, with a 4-foot cascade just upstream.

Water body: Beaver Creek

Access: There is a small pull-off 1.5 miles down Beaver Falls Road from Highway 30 at 46.10333, -123.09556. The falls are visible from the road.

Property status: The area is private property outside of the right-of-way along the road, so please don’t go off exploring.

Notable Wildlife: stream salamanders

Interesting History: The old Columbia River Highway originally went along Beaver Creek rather than its current path. Recreating the Columbia River Highway shows some of the reinforced concrete bridges and highway fences built in 1917 and 1918 are still in use today.
