At just about 15 feet (5 meters) this waterfall may be more of a rapid than a fall. It is however very accessible and makes for a nice outing. Within the Tumwater Falls park area, this may not be the most impressive but it is certainly worth a look.
The falls is partially depleted by the fish ladder that exists just to the side of them but in times of higher water it may be likely that the ladder becomes obscured.

Directions: From I-5 take exit 103 and turn left. After crossing over the freeway take your first right and follow over a bridge to a 3 way stop. Turn left and continue to the park. From there hike the loop trail down the Tumwater river.
