Spokane Falls roars in the spring, as the Spokane River hurtles 60 ft. down, through the middle of the city. The urban setting and dam at the top of the falls greatly decrease the aesthetic appearance of the falls, and later in the summer it is very undramatic when most of the water from the river is diverted by the hydro facility. But in the spring, there is plenty of water in the river, and Spokane Falls is powerful indeed.
When you park your vehicle at Riverside Park, you will be at the Upper Spokane Falls. The (lower) Spokane Falls is a bit down river from here. There are plenty of access points to see the lower falls, but when we were there in 2005, most of them were closed, except one. Find the red brick power building, and follow the driveway beside it down behind the building. There you will find a walkway leading down beside the roaring Spokane Falls to the bottom.
