“the largest waterfall in the American Pacific Northwest”
The Willamette Falls is a natural waterfall on the Willamette River between Oregon City and West Linn, Oregon, in the United States. It is the largest waterfall in the American Pacific Northwest by volume, and the seventeenth widest in the world.Horseshoe in shape, it is 1,500 feet (460 m) wide and 40 feet (12 m) high with a flow of 30,849 cu ft/s (874 m³/s), located 26 miles (42 km) upriver from the Willamette's mouth. Until 2011 a canal and set of locks allowed vessels to pass into the main Willamette Valley. Those locks are now closed.
If you are interested in checking it out closer, there is a tiny kayak rental place down along the water called eNRG Kayaking. It is affordable, and you get to explore the river and the falls all you want (I think the min. is an hour rental). The abandoned factory on the island next to the falls is also seriously interesting to get closer to and have a look at. Very mysterious and intricate.
