Flanked by basalt columns and cliffs, Ki-a-Kuts Falls is a timeless and serene monument that is fitting reward for the effort that it takes to reach the restful site. Named for the last chief of the Atfalati Indians, a local band of Kalapuya Indians, it is a 40-foot (12 m) tall waterfall on the Tualatin River.
Planning and preparation are critical if you want to visit Ki-a-Kuts Falls. That means good hiking boots with proper arch and ankle support, pack plenty of water, food, rain gear and a first aid kit.
Remember that it is a remote area with unreliable cell phone service and private logging roads. It is advised that you check with the Forest Grove office of the Oregon Dept of Forestry for information about road closures.
