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.

History[edit]

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]
