there is a tree blocking the trail side of river so its hard to get close to the falls, BUT if you cross the river by walking on another downed tree, you get a spectacular view and can get super close.

Awesome and easy to access falls!! 5 minute hike from side of road. Hike a little down the river from the falls and there is a cave on the west side of the river.

Not really a hike, just a short path that leads directly to the falls. Went on Tuesday June 23 from 11-1pm and spent a few hours laying on a log by the falls to get some sun. Was a hot day - high of 88 - and I thought it would be nice to take a dip to cool off. Nope!!! That water is ICE cold. And I do mean ice cold. I could only stand to have my feet in the water for a max of 30 seconds before the burning numbing cold made me step out. Several people came to the falls in the 2 hours I was there. Most just walked down, took some pictures and left. One woman with children and dogs stayed a few hours like me. Lovely falls, worth pulling over to get a picture if you are in the area. Note- it’s summer, and this is the forest. Mosquito heaven.

An incredible view without much effort. There is a sign that says “iron creek falls 400ft” and that’s where you park. I did this on 6/10 at 11am and didn’t see a soul. The falls were raging and beautiful!. I posted a picture of the sign to look for when looking for parking as a reference.

Awesome waterfall that you can walk behind. Definitely a very short walk down and you’ll get to the base of the falls. Road to get to it is well maintained just a couple bumps and uneven surface here and there

Walking

This is a short walk down a well maintained path with numerous steps to a larger viewing area of the falls. There are quite a few blown down trees right in front of the falls, but they do not block the view much. Park on a small gravel area on the left hand side of the road, and you will see the path that leads down to the falls. No signage visible.

Hiked (5/9/20) The all trails map takes you to the actually waterfall location instead of the little gravel turn out on the left side of the road where the trail head starts. Very easy walk down to the falls and very pretty. Must see.

I loved this small hike. Such a big reward and it was clearly marked, luckily the road wasn’t closed.

Head up Cispus Road till you get To 2305 bout 5 miles it will be on your right hand side, dirt road Right there pure untouched oldgrowth forest Massive Douglas firs an amazing sight, moss 3 to 4 feet deep.

My mother and I were on our way to hike the Windy Ridge trail but the road was closed so we took a detour and explored this little trail that starts off on the side of the road. I must say that once you get to the bottom the waterfall and creek was simply astounding and I no longer felt bad that we didn't get to hike Windy Ridge. We spent about an hour exploring the area and it was truly breath taking; especially to feel the cool mist from the waterfall hit your face.

Get off your butt, park your car, walk 100 feet down a trail and behold an amazing waterfall. Its as easy as it can get to spectate one of natures beauties. This was a pitstop on the way to mt st helens and other trails in the area. You can spend ten minutes or hours down here looking at this waterfall. Its completely worth the pit stop!
