Follow Lewis and Clark’s footsteps on the trail to the 65-foot waterfall.

A packed trail leads down to the riverbed at the base of Youngs River Falls – a 65-foot pounding plummet into a pool surrounded by lush forest. It’s a popular spot for summer swimmers.

Once there, relax and enjoy a picnic. The trail to the waterfall has been improved with the addition of steps.

Interpretive panels at the site tell the story of the Corps of Discovery.

From Astoria, drive south across Youngs Bay on U.S. Highway 101 Business Loop to Miles Crossing. Turn left at the Youngs River Loop sign and continue to the sign to the falls.
