short easy trail to a nice waterfall around an hour from Crater Lake. Combined with Toketee Fall hike made it worth while. We went on a Sunday evening and had both trails to ourselves. Well worth it.

This is a short easy hike to see some beautiful sites. When I got home & shared my pictures, my family said this looked just like a postcard.

I have been visiting Watson Falls for 40+ years and recently paid a visit which prompted me to urge any and all who enjoy a very moderate, forgiving "hike" {more of a walk...} and wish to enjoy an amazing waterfall in impressive geologic surroundings to put this place on your "must see" list!

Watson Falls is worth the short walk up from the parking lot. Watson Falls is one of many on Hwy 138. I believe that there are 7 or so. Watson Falls is the tallest fall on Hwy 138. Considering the paucity of snow this year I would recommend viewing no later that July at the latest. Love it up there.

Truly did not think I'd be that impressed, however, the hike though short was beautiful. The wooden bridge made a great group picture with the falls in the far background. I was amazed how tall the falls was. The water seemed to fall forever and it was quite beautiful!

Beautiful and located right off the highway. Always take out of town guests here on our way to Crater Lake. The hike is not strenuous, but is it a trail that is not always groomed. Not recommended for those mobility issues (for them I would recommend Susan Creek Falls)

My mom took my and my siblings here about 12 years ago for a hike/picnic and it's still burnt into my memory. One of the most beautiful waterfalls I've seen in Oregon. Still visit from time to time. Definitely worth seeing.

little known, fun hike and unbelievably clear water in the streams by the picnic area. not such a fabulous outhouse, but it's keeping in with the pristine location. take your hiking stick and camera.

beautiful hike after a lovely drive. not for the faint of heart as it is fairly steep going. i highly recommend planning on seeing a couple of other falls to make the drive worth it. im not in great shape but can easily hike watson and toketee in a day. clearwater and whitehorse are out that way as well and...
