A short jaunt down a flat, quarter-mile trail will take you to the viewing area to see Curly Creek Falls. The falls themselves are exceptionally unique because there are two natural arches that span their width. Curly Creek Falls is known to be the only falls in Washington with a natural spanning arch, and the next closest examples are in Wyoming and Canada. Since the falls has two natural arches, however, they are likely some of the few falls on the planet to be in this exclusive category.
Curly Creek Falls feeds into the Lewis River and usually dries up entirely by the end of July. Starting at an elevation of just over 1,100 feet, the falls drop a total distance of 86 vertical feet over two separate tiers.
Ignore the spelling error on the posted wooden sign at the viewpoint that labels the destination “Curely Creek Falls.” Be assured it was the sign-maker’s mistake and there is no extra “e” in the name.
