Falls Creek Cave is an isolated lava tube located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest about 40 minutes outside the small Town of Carson, Washington. The cave is roughly 1.2 miles long and is not maintained or monitored by the Forest Service. If you are familiar with Ape Cave on Mt. St. Helens think of this as its much less popular and virtually crowd-less little brother.
The entrance to the cave can be tricky to find and is located in the second of a series of three cave in pits where the cave has collapsed on itself. Falls Creek Cave requires alot of scrambling and climbing of small boulders and is a bit more challenging than Ape Cave. This is a great adventure for anyone looking to truly feel like they are a character in the Goonies.
