Youngs River Falls is a scenic 65-ft (20 m) waterfall on the Youngs River in northwestern Oregon in the United States. The falls are located in central Clatsop County, approximately 10 mi (16 km) south of Astoria.


The first Americans to report on the falls were members of a hunting party from the Lewis and Clark Expedition, in March 1806. The falls have appeared in movies such as Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home, Benji the Hunted and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.[citation needed]

In July 2014, Tod Gary Wagoner, of Williamsburg, Colorado died after jumping from the falls, the "first [such] fatality at the falls in a while."[1]
