Elowah Falls is somewhat similar in appearance to Latourell Falls. The hike begins along the Gorge Trail (#400). Keep left at the first junction, then left again at the second junction (in 0.2 miles). This short, not overly difficult hike will bring you to a bridge over McCord Creek right at the base of the falls, where you can watch the dramatic waterfall plunge 228 ft. right in front of you. If you go right at the second junction onto the Elowah Falls Trail, you will come to another great viewpoint of Elowah Falls, near the top of the waterfall. This Elowah Falls Trail also continues up to Upper McCord Creek Falls.
Elowah Falls is commonly cited as being 289 ft. high. It is not nearly this tall. My measurement was 228 ft. (which is close to Bryan Swans measurement of 213 ft.). I suspect the 289 ft. measurement includes Upper McCord Creek Falls in the height, which is a short distance upstream of Elowah.
