Picture of Middle Lewis Falls

This trail provides a loop down to the Lewis River where it churns over Middle Falls. The trail soon encounters Upper Copper Creek Falls. A bridge crosses the creek just above the waterfall, presenting a spectacular view as the water falls away from you and over the cliff.

Lewis River Trail #31 is reached about 0.3 mile from the trailhead. Continuing down, you soon come to Middle Falls. The trail then heads down the Lewis River crossing Copper Creek for a second time. You will then cross a bridge above Lower Copper Creek Falls. Continuing up is the Middle Falls Trail loop which will lead you back to the parking lot.
