Name of Waterfall

Copper Creek Falls


Located along the Middle Lewis River Falls trail system, southwest of Mt. Adams, off of Lewis River Road # 90. Drive east of Lower Lewis Falls Recreation area for 1 miles to the Middle Lewis Falls parking lot. Hike along the trail that parallels the road for several hundred feet (on the left side of the parking area) to a bridge crossing above the falls. The trail bends around in front of the falls for full views, however there may be a few tree branches obstructing views in the better viewing places. For full views, climb down the slope for about 25 feet.This waterfall is pretty, but it's definitely not the most impressive waterfall around. Low stream flow limits the quality periods to the spring melt, and during or after prolonged rainfall. Though the falls are a good study for photographers in low water, it's just not all that alluring. The pool at the base of the falls may make a excellent dipping hole if there are no logs obstructing.
