A not well known waterfall in Mt Hood National Forest.
Waterfall Name: Lynn Falls
Waterfall Coordinates: 45.0875, -121.9929 Waterfall Elevation: 2,146′ Access: Drive up Note: This waterfall is easy access, but hidden and not well known.
I came across this waterfall on one of my drives in the woods. I really enjoy exploring back roads and just finding cool places along the way. I stopped by chance at the creek. I got out of my truck and just walked a few feet up along the stream. I was shocked when there was a full on waterfall just barely out of view from the road. It was one of my coolest finds in 2017.
The waterfall is off FS 4630 on the side of the road. There is a sharp turn in the road and obvious water flowing. There’s a slightly wider spot in the road near the creek where one can pull off. There is a little “semi” trail on the right side of the creek. Just walk a few feet up along the creek and Lynn Falls comes into view. There is a sign on a tree to the right of the falls that literally says “Lynn Falls.” So you’ll know if you’re in the right place or not. Skunk Creek feeds the waterfall. The waterfall isn’t marked on maps, but the creek is.
How to get there (from Estacada, OR)
Take Hwy 224 for 20 miles out of Estacada, OR. Turn left on Pipeline Road and continue for 5.8 miles. Turn left on FS 4635 and proceed for 0.6 miles. Turn right on FS 3630 and proceed for 0.56 miles. The waterfall is on the left side of the road.
