Thunder Falls

Yes, that is really the name of this waterfall. Off of Highway 12 near Packwood, Washington there is a bumpy gravel road. Follow that road and you will find a campground. This means you've gone too far. You have just passed by three incredible waterfalls to the left of the trees. There is no sign. How is there no sign? There is a path, but only if you know where to look. It is a absolutely amazing to me that these little gems are just hidden away. But that's the case with a lot of the waterfalls out here.


Anyone interested in finding this waterfall or many of the other tucked away falls should visit the website A really, really great website where I have found detailed directions to places I would otherwise never find. (My very favorite thing about this website is when you look up one waterfall you can click on something that shows you other nearby waterfalls, which means you can hit multiple waterfalls in the same trip.)
