Upper Stevens Creek Falls is a waterfall in the Mount Rainier National Park in Pierce County, Washington. Although virtually ignored, it is said to be one of the greatest waterfalls in the state.

The falls are fed by Stevens Creek, which is a tributary of the Cowlitz River. The falls drop about 375 feet (114 m) into a narrow, barren canyon in a horsetail form about 60 feet (18 m) wide. Significant off-trail travel, which is prohibited, is required to view this waterfall properly.[1]
