Panther Creek Falls is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Southwest Washington roughly 12.5 miles from the small town of Carson. The waterfall is 136 feet in height and is a unique blend of cascades, chutes, veils and plunges.
The falls has a short trail to get down to the viewing platform which sits up above Panther Creek. To get to the base of the falls requires a dangerous scramble down cliffs and is not advised. There is no swimming at Panther Creek Falls so leave your suit at home.
From the town of Carson head north on the Wind River Highway until you see signs for Panther Creek Campground. Take a right onto Warren Gap Road and follow this until you get to a T intersection where Panther Creek Campground is. From here you will want to take a left onto NF-65 and follow it for roughly 4.5 miles until you come to an opening with a large gravel parking lot on the right. Recently some spray painted on the road the direction to the falls but if you cannot find that simply cross the road from the parking lot and walk back down hill looking on your right for a trail leading down towards the creek. For those of you with a GPS unit the parking area coordinates are 45.867362, -121.826460. There is no signage for Panther Creek Falls.
