Metlako Falls – Waterfall

This stunning waterfall pours into Eagle Creek, and is located across the canyon from Eagle Creek Trail. It’s a 100-115 foot plunge-type waterfall, named after the Native American goddess of salmon. It was once visible from Metlako Falls Overlook, located approximately 1.5 miles up the Eagle Creek Trail.

In late December 2016, the overlook collapsed in a landslide and the Forest Service is assessing the stability. In 2017, the area was further damaged when the Eagle Creek fired burned the area’s vegetation, which had been helping to hold the rocky slopes into place.

Please stay clear of the Metlako Falls Spur Trail. It has been closed indefinitely.

  • Height: 100-150 feet.
