Husum Falls: The tallest floatable waterfall in the U.S.

Husum Falls, White Salmon River

Husum Falls is easily one of the most photographed river rapids in the Pacific North West!

The waterfall is located on the White Salmon River is a trip highlight of later season rafting on the White Salmon River. Once flows actually become low enough and the hydraulic at the base of the falls becomes more forgiving, we start running Husum Falls. The change in character creates a waterfall that much mellower as the water levels drop later into the season (usually in August and Sept).

This is one of the largest commercially run drops you will find anywhere in the states. Husum Falls is also located right along Highway 141 in the town of Husum, making it a very easy place for specters to gather and watch.  Just up the road from our White Salmon River Outpost, you can capture ‘hero shot’ photos or check our professional photos after your trip. Although the waterfall is certainly not for everyone, one must be comfortable with the possibility of the raft flipping, being ejected from the raft, and possibly swimming the shallow rapid below the bridge or swimming to shore.
