Hiking Lucia Falls

This short hike takes you to a delightful little waterfall; it's a good alternate to the longer, nearby Bells Mountain trail if you don't have the time or energy.

From the parking area, start down a paved path for 0.3 miles. Here, arrive at a fork in the trail, and head right. You're looping this trail, so you'll return via the left fork. 

Almost immediately, you're rewarded with views of Lucia Falls and the East Fork of the Lewis River. Continuing along the river, arrive soon at Hantwick Road, where the trail turns west, and doubles back on itself back to the main parking area.

WTA Pro Tip: If you have the energy and interest, Moulton Falls is nearby, accessed via the Bells Mountain Trail. It's 4 miles round trip to Moulton Falls, but the trail continues further on if you really want a long hike.

Drive I-205 into Vancouver. Make the exit on to Highway 500 heading east, which turns into Highway 503 (117th Avenue). Proceed north on Highway 503 through the town of Battle Ground. Pass a Safeway at the major intersection in town.

5.5 miles from Battle Ground, turn right onto Rock Creek Road, and follow it for 4.5 miles. It changes to Lucia Falls Road, and Lucia Falls Park is on the right side.
