Whether you're looking for a quick stroll to a beautiful view or a longer scramble, Palouse Falls State Park will not disappoint. The main attraction at this Eastern Washington park is the 198-foot Palouse Falls, but the geology surrounding the falls is just as impressive. This is a perfect picnic destination that offers a number of covered and uncovered picnic areas with amazing views. Sunset at Palose Falls should not be missed, as the sun lights the canyon and flatlands dramatically. If you wish to stay the night, there are 11 first-come, first-served campsites, including one ADA-compliant site. 

Visitors are offered a variety of views of the falls and the river below from both ends of the park. There were once trails leading from the railroad tracks on the north end of the park, but they have since been closed due to safety concerns. Please be respectful of the trail closures and stay in the designated viewing areas.

Dogs are allowed in the park, but they must be on a leash. The ledge is very steep and unfenced in areas. Additionally, this area is known for rattlesnakes and yellow-bellied marmots, both of which are better seen from a distance by people and pets.
