General | Latest Info

As of June 01 2020, users have reported that the Recreation center and Lower Falls parking Area are close, but you might be able to find parking at Upper Falls. Please check conditions on the park website to see up-to-date road and trail closures. There is a permanent detour around Middle Falls, trail slid and is impassable between Lower and Middle Falls. All of the Trail behind detour is closed for all uses. Detour routes thru Middle Falls parking Area. Possible to make 7-mile loop hike, out and back along this 3. A 5-mile long Trail touring three colossal waterfalls on this Trail. Park by restrooms. The Gravel Trail sets off; take right-hand fork to heard to overlook the Lower Falls. Continue on riverbank upstream, ignore all left forks, After half mile, the gravel path turns to duff. After another mile, cross a footbridge; you can take left here for a half-mile loop to Copper Creek's other waterfall, which you may save for return trip. Continue along Lewis River past Middle Falls to Upper Falls; final 0. 7 miles of Lewis River Trail passes humble Taitnapum Falls and follows Quartz Creek to a bridge on Road 90. This is a section of Trail No. 31 that starts at Lower Falls Recreation Area. There is no cell service there. The trail is well cared for and easy to moderate. I hiked from Trailhead to Lower Falls and up to Middle Falls, which was blocked off. Not sure if there would be a view from another direction. The Lower Falls were spectacular and the view throughout the hike was lovely. Very few hikers on the trail and I easily find parking. I arrive in early afternoon but want to come back earlier before everything is mostly in shade. I go Tue after Labor Day at 7: 30 AM and had the entire Trail to myself. Amazing hike. If you keep to the Trail, not take any detours for view / water, then Upper Lewis parking lot to Lower Lewis view point is exactly 4 miles. Away Add mile for all detours, it would be around 9 miles. All the falls are beautiful. Currently, all parking except upper are closed however I saw people go over tape and park at Middle Lewis later in the day. If anyone wants shorter hike, I would strongly recommend Upper to Middle Falls as its shorter with 3 falls. The trail is very well maintain. Some places are little steep. Mostly under shade. Great Day and great Falls so glad I was able to complete this Trail before the end of summer. There is very limited parking at Trail head, so plan to get there early to snag a spot. Parking diagonally helps fit more cars into limited space! Lots of foot traffic on Labor Day weekend with very few people wearing masks. The falls are all gorgeous.
