  • Great day to view the Falls, spray was in the air at the parking area. We had to drive the the parking area twice before a spot became available. It was spring break and very busy.  more »
  • We were exploring the Palouse scenic byway and discovered the Palouse falls. It was well worth the 250 mile drive from Seattle. Great drive towards walla walla. Not much around so you might want to ca...  more »
  • The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 was parking issues. The place was beautiful. I do wish they made a better fence system in the bluff we could see that someday someone could get hurt or kill...  more »

  • Beautiful view of the falls. The park was oddly well maintained in spite of being so far out of the way. There were self-issuing camping permits there with access to water and bathrooms. I hope to go back during the winter.
  • Wow wow. Out of no where you hear a waterfall, when you go close all you say is, @$'#+);"®®™%℅[.....Literally nothing. Just so amazed by this natural beauty. From the parking lot it's a few steps away, and if you want to go down to the falls there is no manmade trail. Can go down but gotta be very careful. There are day passes available near the falls, if you can split a ranger they'll have a yearly pass(30$)as well. There are two restrooms as well. But then for miles and miles there is nothing.🙄 Make sure to carry enough water and food. You gotta visit this place once in your life time.
  • You wouldn't know there was much around there based on the country side you can see from the highway, but only two miles in is this gorgeous canyon and waterfall! It was pretty rainy when I was there, so I can't wait to go back and explore, there's actually quite a bit of hiking.
  • One of the most beautiful places in mid-washington. Bring a rope if you plan to go to the base of the waterfall as the trails down are steep and damp from the air.
  • The location is stunning! Lots of parking, but it fills up quick so make sure you arrive by early afternoon. As far as the falls, it's gorgeous! Definitely a must-see if you're in the area. The look out was nice, but we went off-trail down into the canyon and swam in a little area that had multiple small falls! A pretty easy hike down to it, great for kids. You can continue the trail to the top of the falls and swim/cliff jump right behind where it drops down as well. We will be trying that spot next time! There were many people down at the base of the falls, and it was a pretty treacherous hike down. I wouldn't recommend going down to it, although it was beautiful. There was a sign stating they will be creating an official trail down to the base, so I probably wouldn't go back down until that it created, as later that evening a man tumbled off the edge and got seriously injured. It was very steep, and the trail itself was thin, so you barely had room to walk. There is a couple ropes to use as you climb back up, as well as helping you descend down. Lots of loose rocks, and did I mention it's steep?! There were people coming from the river, so there might be another trail that goes all the way around, and maybe it's more safe. All in all, a great location to visit, but try to keep your children/dogs close by!
