Great fall hike and amazing falls

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.

You can do a short hike or long if you like. Both falls are pretty easy to get to. After trying to get to tumalo falls and finding the road closed we found these falls to visit. Not very big but beatiful to see.

Unfortunately the directions for the other listing of Koosah & Sahalie Falls took us about 40+ miles in the wrong direction. Eventually found this and it was so worth it. From I-5 it's on the way to Sisters, Oregon (not on the other side of Sisters) via HWY 126. About 19 miles outside of McKenzie Bridge - look for the... More
