Naked Falls offers multiple cliff jumping from various heights, waterfall slides, and plenty of dry rock space for picnics and sunbathing. Aside from the challenge of the short-but-steep trail accessing the river from the road, the location is well suited for all ages. The main attraction at Naked Falls is the 30-foot cliff that gives jumpers the chance to plunge into a dark and deep spot in the river. For those that are a bit timid when it comes to heights, Naked Falls is still worth the trip. The Washougal River is crystal clear and the area has numerous swimming holes with slow-moving water. Also, just a short walk up river is a bridge with two rope swings.

Rumor has it that the location was named for the popularity of the falls as a locale for nude summer sunbathing. If tanning in the nude wasn’t what initially drew people to the location, maybe it was the fact that Naked Falls is the second largest waterfall on the Washougal River.

Cliff Jumping Safety

Swimming holes and cliff jumping can be extremely dangerous and unpredictable outdoor activities that pose significant risks regarding personal safety. Changing water levels, unseen rocks, and river bottoms that have shifted with currents and seasonal weather can turn a well-known jumping area into a serious hazard. Prior to engaging in these activities, extensively scout the current conditions, and understand the risks involved with serious injury and the logistical challenges of evacuation from the water so you can make safe decisions.
