Beaver Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Beaver Falls (bobcat)

Description

Beaver Creek spills over a lip of columnar basalt into a classic amphitheater in Columbia County. This area was heavily logged beginning in the 19th century. Beaver Creek was used as a conduit for floating logs down to the Columbia and a small dam was built to contain the log raft above the falls. The dam was then broken and the ensuing flood pushed the logs over the falls and downstream.
