Washington has hundreds and hundreds of stunning waterfalls, many of which require little to no hiking to reach. But, while our well-known spots like Snoqualmie Falls and Palouse Falls tend to (understandably) steal the spotlight, some of our hidden gems are equally as impressive. If you’re planning a trip to the Columbia Gorge this summer, don’t miss the Lower Falls Creek Trail, which takes you right to a breathtaking waterfall plenty of Washingtonians don’t know about.

Have you ever hiked this somewhat hidden trail? To avoid fellow hikers, try to go on a weekday morning — it’s more fun that way.
