Hike Description

This hike can be done any time of the year, but keep in mind Woodburn Falls is dry from mid-June through October. You start at the Lacamas Park Trailhead, just off Everett Street. You start out by hiking up the paved path out of the parking lot and onto the gravel path in between Round Lake and Mill Pond. Soon you come to the Round Lake Dam. Cross over this dam, skip the first path to the right, and take the second path, which will eventually end up at an overlook of the Potholes (Lacamas Creek). Right behind you is a gravel service road. Hike along this road uphill past the junction for the Lacamas Park Lily Field Hike and about a third of a mile later you'll see an unmarked, but obvious path heading to the right. This path leads down to the base of Woodburn Falls in about a third of a mile.

Return the way you came.
