Munson Creek Falls State Natural Site

Near Tillamook, Oregon, United States

Munson Creek Falls tumbles 319' over several tiers, making it the tallest waterfall in the Coast Range. A short trail winds along Munson Creek through an old-growth forest to the base of the waterfall. This rewarding hike is .6 miles round-trip, and is accessible for all ages and every level of hiking enthusiast.

Spring and summer bring blooming trillium, corydalis and violets beneath the forest canopy. Come fall, the big leaf maples and red alders are ablaze with color. Munson Creek is vital salmon habitat. During the late fall through the winter, watch the waters for spawning salmon just below the surface.
