About this spot
In 2014 the Glines Dam was removed, Lake Mills Reservoir drained and the entire Elwha drainage allowed to begin its return to its natural condition. Even though the salmon have already begun to return to their spawning grounds, the river and surrounding area will take years to heal. Please respect any signs or closures you may find and allow nature to do its magic. The river has washed out the two valley campgrounds and caused considerable damage to the road. Beautiful Madison Falls is one of the few of the area's highlights that, so far, has escaped damage from the rages of the river. The waterfall is accessed by a short, 0.1 mile, walk on a paved trail through the forest.
