Elowah Falls, also called McCord Creek Falls, is a 213-foot waterfall on the Columbia River Gorge, Multnomah County, Oregon, United States. Elowah Falls is one of several waterfalls along McCord Creek. The Creek and the waterfall are within the limits of the John B. Yeon State Scenic Corridor.

The name of the waterfall carried the name of the creek that forms it: McCord Falls. In 1915 the Mazamas successfully had the falls renamed to Elowah. The meaning of the term is unknown.
