Overview

The park is home to ancient western red cedar and Sitka spruce. As Sitka Spruce trees attain great heights, their trunks grow large with an average diameter of 2 meters. These trees live a long life and some of them have lived for 700 years! In the north of Oregon, the Sitka spruce is found along riversides. Munson Creek is an important salmon spawning ground and many salmon species return to this creek. Munson Creek Falls tumbles 319', making it the tallest waterfall in the Coast Range. A splendid trail system winds through the hills to the waterfall. The viewpoint at the end of the falls trail is closed, although the falls is visible from the closure point. The park is open year-round and there is no fee to use this park. There is no water or restroom at the park, and the road is narrow with no turn-around for RVs. Munson Creek Falls State Natural Site is first come, first-served.
