Dougan Creek Falls


Driving east from Washougal towards Stevenson along Highway 14, turn north on Salmon Falls Road (10 miles west of Bridge of the Gods or 3 miles east of Cape Horn) and follow it for 3 miles to Washougal River Road. Turn right and follow Washougal River Road for 5 miles to Dougan Falls at the end of the pavement. Park to the left on the far side of the bridge and follow the trails 50 feet to the viewpoint overlooking the falls.Dougan Falls on the Washougal River is the major waterfall of the immediate area, but Dougan Creek also slides 12 feet into a beautiful little orange and blue pool in the same area. A small viewing deck overlooks the falls from within the Dougan Creek Campground picnic area, but several branches block totally clear views. The pool at the base of the falls serves as a fantastic swimming hole in the summer.
