Driving Directions

Drive north from Portland on Interstate 5 to Woodland, WA. Leave the freeway at Exit 21 and turn right on to Lewis River Rd, signed as Highway 503. Set your odometer to 0 at the freeway exit. Drive east on Highway 503 for 23 miles to the former location of Jack's Restaurant. Continue straight on Highway 503 Spur through the town of Cougar. The road changes to Forest Road 90 at the Skamania County Line. Continue east on 90 to a junction with FR 25, about 47 miles from the freeway. You'll turn right here, staying on FR 90. Cross the North Fork of the Lewis River, pass the Eagle Creek Store and continue up FR 90 into the forest. Pass the Lower Falls Recreation Area about 14 miles beyond Road 25. You'll soon pass the Wright Meadows Trailhead and then you'll come to the Middle Falls Trailhead on the right side of the road. The parking area is hidden from the road, but it's marked with a sign.
