Description

While Tumwater Falls are not quite as spectacular as some of the other waterfalls in the region, these falls are still worth visiting. Located in Olympia in the Tumwater Falls Park, this park is a little patch of "wild" surrounded by a massive city. So go and dip your toes in the woods and enjoy the scenic cascades! If you happen to time your visit to the salmon run, you'll be treated to a truly spectacular sight.

Short Walk: Just a few yards from the parking area. Use the Tumwater Falls Loop.

Family Friendly: It is easily accessible for the whole family.

Gem Type: Waterfall
