Beautiful falls with easy and close access to parking. The view from the platform above the falls is outstanding. Make sure you take the pathway to the right from the trailhead adjacent to the parking lot. Its not marked, so its easy to miss.

Gorgeous falls with well built trails that will take you directly to perfect viewing spots. I think even someone with limited mobility could manage the gently sloping parts of the trails. Kudos to Oregon for making a beautiful, natural spot accessible. Sahalie Falls is better marked and more visited, but Koosah Falls is just a short distance down the road... More

This is a review strictly for Sahalie Falls, which was my personal favorite waterfall in Oregon. We hadn't even heard of this beautiful place until my cousin from Sisters told us to swing by on our way to Portland. So glad we did! It was a worthwhile diversion. She printed out some directions for us before we left her house,... More

When we visited the map showed the falls east of Sisters! I see it's been moved in the right direction but it's still not correct. The falls are on HWY 126 below Clear Lake and just upstream from Carmen Reservoir. Nice pair of falls, easy hike, just a lot further away from Bend than we expected!

You have to cross over the first pass going west on US 20 and then take route 126 to get to these falls. It is well worth the drive. They are located on a spring fed river, so the flow is rather constant. Both are a short walk from their respective parking lots. They are surrounded by lots of green... More

We stopped by a chance on these waterfalls (thought that they not much worth it after Columbia gorge)... Well, my kids liked them even more and especially top one - very close interaction with the waterfall. Also, it is so close to the parking lot - don't even think and stop if you driving by.

Spectacular!. Been there many times. Best during the spring run-off. You wouldn't believe the amount of water going over the falls at that time. Still very nice any other time.

A not to be missed hike on the McKenzie River! 2 roaring waterfalls and beautiful views along the river the whole loop of this 2.5 mile hike. Most of the path is shaded so suitable even on a sunny day. Bring water and be prepared for uphill hiking most of the way back on the west side of the river.... More

We got there by mistake and it was the best one ever. We did a half hour hike between trees and amazing landscapes and then chilled watching a lake. My photos will speak better than me. If you are going in February bring a rain jacket! and prepare to be cold

This was the highlight of our trip to Sisters! Really neat to hike on both sides of river and see two very beautiful waterfalls. Would do it again in a heartbeat
