This was a great way to spend the day. We started out at the Village in Sunriver and road on paved paths all the way to the trail head. Then on the dirt trail out out to the falls (white water) it was beautiful. Then we continued on to the Meadow where there was a picnic area. It was about... More

This a Class 5+ or 6 waterfall (the "do not run, unless, and maybe even if you are an expert" type) and the 10-15 minute walk to the falls is worth the trip. People have run it and survived, and it was entertaining for me to try to pick out a route that would work. But the reasons for this... More

This is a super easy, wide trail that even small children can do. You will start with fairly still waters and as you walk, you'll hear the powerful falls. If that's not enough, there's plenty of trail to follow after the falls.

Just a short trip out from Lava Lands (if you bring a mountain bike park at Lava Lands and ride out). Nice walk out to the falls along the Deschutes River. Relatively flat - wouldn't be a bad walk with kids. Beautiful setting. Fun afternoon.

We were going to check out the lava cave but found out when we got there it was closed on Wednesday. We found this hike on tripadvisor and decided to check it out. It was so worth it! The falls are stunning! We hiked but the path is paved so it's bike friendly too. It is a pretty short hike... More

Pretty setting, but had a lot of ice on the trail the time of year that I went. More rapids than falls. Nice walk along the river after you leave the falls.

This is a fabulous mountain Bike ride from Sunriver. The trail begins at Circle 7, and winds through the forest and along the Deschutes River. Visitors are rewarded with a fabulous overlook at the falls. For a longer Mountain Bike ride, follow the river to slough picnic area, or to Dillon falls. Dillon is a 17 mile round trip, Slough...

15 miles on forest road 41 is Benham Falls with maintained trails through deep woods. Lava flows create many rapids on the Deschutes River.. This is a "wild & scenic" river with many falls.
