Both Sahalie and Koosah Falls are Amazing and well worth the stop. Great photo opportunity whether it is in the warmth of summer, fall colors, winter white, or Spring with large run off of water making bigger falls. Quick stop if you are in a hurry, and clean pit toilets if you need a break. If you have more time,... More

We drove to the falls during snowfall and were only able to park by Sahalie Falls because the road is wider there. It was worth the snowy drive. The entrances to both falls parking lots had been plowed shut by the road crew. We were able to climb over the pile of snow at Sahalie (boots, gloves, etc. a must)... More

Easy hike to both falls, parked at the Koosah parking lot and worked our way up on the trail to Sahalie. Well worth the walk ! Different falls but both spectacular !

It was my first time in Oregon, and a friend took me so see Sahalie Falls. The falls and the whole area were absolutely breathtaking. There was a path to hike to the top of the falls, one to go to the bottom of the falls, and another that led down the river. The water itself was a crystal-blue, and... More

I came across these falls while I was looking for the tamolitch. I was very surprised to find these falls just off of the street and a short hike away from each other. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from Eugene, but it is absolutely worth it!!! Bring your camera. *You will NOT get phone service here, so make sure... More

After seeing Proxy Falls, we decided to keep driving to see these falls. They are very close to each other. There are walking paths to get to the falls. They are both very beautiful.

What a beautiful trail we hiked at these wonderful falls. The falls aware nestled in a pine forest and are just breathtaking to watch and listen to.

If you are driving by this area, stop the car. It is sometimes hard to find a parking spot, but be patient until you get one. Then hike along the McKenzie River to both waterfalls and enjoy the clear, cold water, the rush of the falls, and just being outside. This is a magical place, so take a deep breath... More

Great hike. Would have liked better directions and info on the trail, but we made due. We visited in the fall and the colors were just starting to show on the foliage.

this is a wonderful trail! there two lovely falls with a great trail in between that runs along the river. Just park at whichever falls you come to first(depending upon which direction you are coming from) and then take the walk to the other one. there is some elevation gain but not too much.
