Introduction:

Hole-in-the-Wall Falls is a 100-foot waterfall on Warren Creek in Starvation Creek State Park, Hood River County, Oregon, United States. Its main drop is 60 feet. It was created in 1938 when Warren Creek was diverted through a tunnel (hence its name) to prevent washouts of the Columbia River Highway.

To Do:

The hike is best done from late April through early November, as the conditions can be somewhat treacherous in icy winter conditions, and the stream fords difficult in winter and early spring. But for adventurous hikers, this loop is generally open year-round, and provides a nice hiking option when snow covers the high country.

Facts:

There was an ongoing flooding problem at Warren Creek and in 1938, highway forces decided that best way to remove the problem was to remove the creek. A pipe-like channel was blasted through the rock and Hole in Wall Falls was born.
