It was a little bit of a drive to get to the trailhead, but it was just a short decline walk to the falls overlook. Great for photos. We also drove to Dillon Falls (we liked those better).

Benham Falls is gorgeous and worth this easy and scenic hike! Good for all ages. Think about adding this on to your day if you're visiting the High Desert Museum.

Wonderful and easy trail along the river. Benham Falls is beautiful and great for photos. A definite must during your stay at Sunriver Resort. Pack a picnic and enjoy the sounds of the river, beautiful sunshine, and lava rocks!
