Salmon River Gorge
1963 Naming Expedition
Upper Final Falls

Upper Final Falls is the unofficial name of a 15 foot drop in the Salmon River, located immediately above Final Falls. The members of the 1963 expedition took this photo from the top of Final Falls. This view provides a wonderful example of the massive old-growth forest that thrives on the narrow ledges and cliffs of the Salmon River Gorge.

During high water, this falls broadens to pour over the entire face of the rock shelf to the right of the main falls, indicated here by fallen logs deposited during heavy runoff.
