Panther Creek Falls (photographer: Warren Morgan)
Trail Description Driving DirectionsThis is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the entire Gorge region. It's a hidden gem inside the Gifford Pinchot National Forest that few people know about. It's a short walk to a wooden viewing platform perfectly perched for one to marvel at such a unique waterfall. Allow plenty of time to soak in the different combinations of waterfalls and to let your eyes explore the hanging gardens and rich colors of moss.
We recommend coupling this hike with nearby Falls Creek Falls. + Read More
