Palouse Falls

Palouse Falls State Park, Washington

Once called Aput Aput, meaning falling water, Palouse Falls were renamed in honor of the Palouse Native American culture. The gem of Palouse Falls State Park, a journey to the falls requires dedication, as this scenic destination is rather isolated. However intrepid travelers’ treks here are paid off by breathtaking views of the upper falls dropping 200 feet to the lower falls in a 377-foot canyon. Take a hike to the top for the ultimate heart-pounding view; it's natural proof that the best things are worth the extra effort.
