2012 - Upper Tualatin Waterfalls

Our goal on this trip was to find two Tualatin River waterfalls high in the steep and densely forested canyons of the Coast Range. The first was Ki-a-Kuts Falls, a spectacular 45 foot waterfall that plunges through a very narrow cleft in a basalt rock cliff. The second was Upper Tualatin Falls, whose only reference I could find was on the Northwest Waterfall Survey web page. Although finding Ki-a-Kuts Falls was fairly easy, the Upper Tualatin proved to be a little more challenging.
