CATALOGED
This waterfall has been surveyed, mapped and measured in person by the World Waterfall Database.
Photo of Twin Creek Falls Twin Creek Falls is a lacy veil that drops 91 feet that can be seen adjacent to FR 23 in the upper Cispus River drainage. Foreshortening of the top 2/3 of the falls makes this one look much smaller than it really is. During high discharge periods this is a moderately scenic waterfall but the small drainage area of Twin Creek limits its attractiveness to the snowmelt season. The falls do appear to flow for most of the year, but could run dry out during especially dry summers.

Some time during the winter of 2014 several large trees have fallen between the road and the falls, which will at the very least make viewing the falls from the road (and in turn with the least amount of foreshortening) impossible without heavy obstruction. It appears to be considerably more difficult to walk up to the base of the falls now as well.
Seasonal Discharge
This waterfall occurs along a stream that is known to vary greatly in volume and as a result may not flow consistently year round or may dry out completely during certain periods.

Photography tips


Twin Creek Falls suffers from a substantial amount of foreshortening due to the pitch of the top of the falls. Shooting from the road will yield the most illustrative views of the falls, but they'll most likely be partially obstructed by a tree or two. From the bottom of the falls, the upper half can't be seen. The falls face west and are often bathed in sunlight in the afternoon, so save this one for the morning.
