Upper Beaver Creek Falls - Olympic Peninsula

Cascading, clear and cold, Upper Beaver Creek Falls flows through lush lowland forests and woodlands. The Olympic Peninsula along the Washington coast receives some of the highest rainfall of the lower 48 states. The Hoh Rainforest receives the most rainfall of all (in the Olympic National Park), with an average of about 170 inches (or about 14 feet) of rain which produces some of the most beautiful forests you’ll ever see. Even here a few miles away on Beaver Creek, the woodlands are full of moss, draped in the trees and covering rocks and fallen trees.

Here just a dozen miles up the road from Forks, WA (of the ‘Twilight Saga,’ fame) is Beaver Creek, a tributary of the Sol Duc River. Forks and the nearby areas receive about 110 inches of rain annually and the woodlands that this creek flows through are dense, green and abundant. The Lower Falls have a drop of about twenty feet, cascading across the width of the creek and they are beautiful as well. You have to do a bit of climbing through brush and stand on steep, slippery banks to get a view of either the Upper or Lower Falls, but it is worth the effort.
