The 2022 hiking season wound up being full of waterfalls. That wasn’t necessarily the plan at the beginning of the year but when Heather’s season was cut short I wound up doing three waterfall filled hikes on top of several waterfall hikes we’d done earlier in the year. By the end of the year we’d seen 50+ named waterfalls and 20 unnamed cascades. That seems like enough to warrant a post so here are the waterfalls and cascades that we saw throughout the year.
Starting with the unnamed cascades were a pair of small drops near the Nehalem Divide Railroad Tunnel.
On that same hike we visited a seasonal fall just off the Crown Zellerbach Trail.
In April we saw a series of cascades along Silvas Creek from the Klickitat Trail
During a June hike to Black Hole Falls we passed three unnamed cascades on the North Fork Siouxon Trail.
The following week we passed a nice little fall on the North Umpqua River Trail heading to Lemolo Falls.
Our next notable unnamed cascade was below Devil’s Punchbowl in the Siskiyou Wilderness which we visited on July 2nd.
On July 12th we encountered an impressive split cascade in the Eagle Cap Wilderness on the way to Burger Pass along the Buck Creek Trail.
In August we saw a few unnamed falls/cascades starting with a little slide falls along Hemlock Creek.
Unnamed waterfall along Riley Creek in the Mt. Adams Wilderness
Unnamed waterfall below East Boulder Lake in the Trinity Alps Wilderness.
A September hike along Union Creek produced several unnamed cascades.
My October waterfalls hikes produced two unnamed cascades.
Cascade on Wahkeena Creek.
Small cascade along the North Fork Silver Creek.
The final unnamed cascade came on a chilly November hike along the Eagle Creek Trail beyond Seven Mile Falls.
Now for the named waterfalls (All names come from the Northwest Waterfall Survey.)
