Panther Creek Falls is one of the most unique waterfalls in Skamania County. There are 2 tiers of segmented waterfalls, 50-70 feet in height. They both empty into the same basin. To reach the TH drive the Wind River Road 5.8 miles about 500 ft from the TH.

We have not attempted the trail yet; trying to figure out how to get there. But a suggestion would be to post the GPS Coordinates of the TH. That way our GPS would take us there instead of trying to figure out the roads to get there. Thank you.

Some of the most gorgeous falls you'll ever see, and not many (if any) other people there. NO SIGNS here... be sure to park at the gravel pit parking lot area and walk along the road back the way you came and look for the trail (spray paint on street points you in the right direction).

Beautiful falls but my friend had a prosthetic leg so we couldn't go to the bottom. I didn't read every single review about the rope and how steep it got. Honestly super sad I wasted an hour and a half of my drive to just view from the top.

Pictures don't do it justice! Absolutely gorgeous!!! Trail head is 4.7 miles past the panther creek campground. Park at gravel pit and walk back down the road to a small path. It's not much of a hike very short to the look out, but like someone mentioned you can get down with the rope along the rocks. It's steep and a little scary if you're new to that kind of thing, but so worth it! I would love to go back with more time to explore down the falls further. Truly a beautiful site!

Beautiful! I wanted to get closer, it was to slick to head down the cliff side. Next time though.

Short scramble down a canyon. This will require a short steep roped grapple down but well worth it for the 180 views of the waterfall.

This was not really a hike, more like a stroll down into the woods. Super brief walk, pretty steep. The trail is a gravel walkway hidden on the side of the road. Park in the gravel pit area and then walk back down the road to find it. Maybe 100 feet or so? One of the most beautiful falls I've seen, pictures do not do it justice.
