Set just twenty minutes’ drive to the south of the center is the Youngs River Falls which certainly makes for a spellbinding sight. One of the only waterfalls in the Astoria area, it lies in a scenic and secluded spot and makes for some fantastic photos. Towering to sixteen meters in height, the jet white waters of the falls cascade down a craggy cliff before plunging into a pool below. As it lies at the end of a short trail, visitors need to hike to the waterfall before they can bask in its beauty, bathe in its waters, and enjoy a picnic on its banks. 12 Fun Things to do in Astoria, Oregon Last updated on September 25, 2021 in Oregon Lying at the mouth of the mighty Columbia River is the small city of Astoria which is steeped in history and has lots of interesting tourist attractions and stunning scenery for visitors to enjoy. Due to its strategic and secluded setting just inland from the Pacific, its port acted as a stop-off point for seafaring voyages for many years with numerous things to do in Astoria relating either to its maritime past or the wonderful waters around it. Remarkably enough, Astoria was the first US settlement established west of the Mississippi with the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition having wintered here in 1805. Aside from this, the city’s other main claim to fame is that it was the setting for blockbuster hit The Goonies with numerous sites around town having featured in the 1985 film. Add in all of its beautiful historic buildings, bustling downtown, and nearby nature spots and it is easy to see why Astoria makes for such a popular, if slightly drizzly, destination. 12.

Young's river falls can be viewed from the parking lot (about 20 minutes drive from Astoria) or can be seen up close by hiking downhill (about 5 minutes walk, terrain is rough/uneven) We love this spot for catching fresh air and getting sprayed by the crashing waterfall!

Lewis and Clark traveled here. For those guest who have limited mobility, this is a great car trip s you can see the falls from your car.

The Youngs River hurtles over a large wall, veiling 54 feet into a pool locked in by large gravel bars. The falls are somewhat unique in that the base is located only about 10 feet above sea level. The falls face north and will only see direct sunlight during the longest months of the year - probably late mid May to mid July. Spray can be quite heavy at the bottom of the falls, but climbing up onto the logs and rocks to the right of the falls will get you out of much of the mist zone (outside of flood conditions).

    “Here you can find the replica of the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s winter quarters. You can also go inside the visitors center to find exhibits, educational programs, a bookstore, audio-visual programs and a map of hiking trails. During our visit we went inside the visitors center to learn more about the history of Lewis and Clark and their expedition and then headed outside to explore the replica of the winter quarters. We also started the Fort to Sea trail from there and left our car in the parking lot until we retuned back in the evening. The entrance fee is $10 per person (16 years old and up) and it’s free for 15 and younger. The pass is valid for 7 days. You can also get a Oregon Coast Pass ($35) which covers entry, vehicle parking and day use fees at all the Oregon State and Federal fee sites along the coast. If you have a National Parks Pass that covers your entrance and parking. An Interagency Annual Pass is $80 and is valid for 12 months! It’s perfect for those who love visiting National Parks!”
