Mill Creek Falls, USGS Brown Creek (1994), plummets 150 feet within the limited access area of The Dalles Watershed. A hiking permit and directions can be requested by contacting authorities at (541) 298-1242.
Low-lying falls once occurred along the mighty Columbia River, but have
since disappeared due to hydroelectric projects. The Dalles,
USGS The Dalles South (1994 ns), has been replaced the The Dalles Dam and
Celilo Falls, USGS Stacker Butte (1994 ns), is covered by the reservoir
created by the dam.
