Railcar Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Railcar Falls, a voluminous and swiftly tumbling cascade through a jumble of boulders, is a very difficult waterfall to view as it obscured by blowdown and thickets of salmonberry and devil's club which any bushwhacker would have to negotiate on a steep and uneven slope. A viewpoint from the rim above the waterfall upper tier gives a partial view of the more vertical upper tier. You can see the lip of the waterfall from Railcar Bridge on Longview Timberlands property.

The railcar bridge gives the waterfall its name. The bridge is, in fact, a repurposed railcar.
