Popular attraction in Sunriver, OR and a must see. Beautiful trail along the river with views of lava banks, river, rapids and then the falls. This trail is dirt, but connected to Lava Lands Visitor Center and Sunriver by a new, paved bike and walk path. Wheelchair access down the trail to falls may be possible. It is a little... More

Easy to find and easy walking on a well maintained wide trail, the falls are breathtaking, I had the opportunity to witness three adventuresome kayakers go down the fall, what a ride, not for everyone, thrill seekers only. Beautiful hike lovely scenery

This is an essentially flat hiking or biking path from Circle 7 of Sunriver Resort to Benham Falls. Less than 100 yards north of Circle 7, there is a small parking lot next to the entrance to the newly paved path to Benham Falls. After approximately 2 miles on the path, you cross the Deschutes River by means of a... More

The scenery and fellow travelers were a plus. The path includes pretty flat paths for handicapped, some steep ones for a better view of the river, and bike side trails.

Finding the trail head was more difficult than anticipated, I would recommend making sure you have exact direction and not depend only on a map as some of the roads do not connect as shown on maps. The hike to the falls takes about 30 minutes or so from the parking area and is very easy, many mountain bikers were... More

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
