Moose Falls

Crawfish Creek drops over this 30-foot plunge in route to joining the Lewis River. The hike to the brink or to the base of the falls is very short, less than 1/10th a mile. From the brink, a look upstream gives you a good view of the old stone bridge over the main road as it crosses over the creek. From the brink of the falls, stone steps and a dirt path take you down to the base of the falls and a great location for a photo with the falls in the background.


In years past, jumping off the brink of the falls into the pool below was a common occurrence here as the water is warmer due to geothermal features that warm the creek along its path. However, a prominently posted sign now reads “Closed to all swimming, wading, soaking, or any entry to the water”.
