The waterfall at Starvation Creek, one of the few in this area of the gorge, is an elegant cascade admired by gorge travelers for thousands of years. Parking fills fast, so come early. You don't need to pay a fee to park here.

What a huge surprise! We say a trail head completely full when we were driving to another hike and decided to stop by on the way back after looking up and seeing it was so short. What a spectacular waterfall! I would stop by again in a heart beat. So beautiful.

Very well paved route along the highway. The noise from the highway was quite loud and difficult to talk to my wife....But..... over all it was a very beautiful walk. We got to see 3 of the 4 falls. Along this path. Saw the beautiful scenery and found a very interesting insect. Very easy hike.

Very short and easy hike with an amazing view of the falls. Right off the road and very easy to get to.

Most of the gorge is still closed. We forgot to check before driving out with the baby. Got a couple good pics though! Ida is 6 months old.

it was very pretty and well maintained. Just not my scene with the freeway, heavy foot traffic, and paved walk way. But would be great for others I'm sure

Cross the river and scramble up the left side of creek - worth the short hike to see the falls!

We may have taken the wrong trail and ended up with a mix of Starvation and Defiance trails. With 4 children under 7. A lot more challenging than we expected but the kids did great and we ended up with killer views.

Nice waterfall, several trail heads here leading to challenging routes with additional falls and vistas. Parking fills fast, so come early. You don't need to pay a fee to park here. There is a paved path for biking along the highway.
