Deschutes Falls Park, 25005 Bald Hill Rd., Yelm, WA

This park is a hidden treasure in Thurston County [at the end of Bald Hill Rd.]. In its natural form, it is a paradise for adventurers and photographers. Here one can find natural rock monoliths, swirling pools of water, native plants and animals, deep canyons, and the falls.”

“Water cascades into the river, where the banks rise to approximately 70 feet. The river then moves through a 400 foot gorge, and finally settles into a basin that is 300 by 150 feet. The portion of the Deschutes River that runs through the park has a series of small waterfalls visible to visitors,” from Thurston County Parks. Read more
