We have visited this lovely falls a number of times. It is definitely one of the best waterfalls in the Oregon coast area. Fall is a good time of year to visit, or perhaps early... read more

Seriously, state of Oregon? That is easily the worst road that I have seen, and I have lived in this state for 15 years. That said, our minivan made it just fine. It is also a great little site. There is no bathroom, as stated. The hike is 1/4 mile and beautiful. The falls are terrific. We really enjoyed it.... More

Great place to take visitors who don't like to hike much. Beautiful falls and forest. Watch out for potholes on the drive! A few picnic tables and small parking area. Sometimes I'm the only one here, but at other times a few families with young kids, too. Buy some picnic food at Fred Myers or the Blue Herron and enjoy... More

Munson Falls is located south of Tillamook Oregon. Follow the signs east to the Falls. There is ample parking, but no room for trailers. The walk is through a heavily wooded glen. You are never far from the water, and the hike is easy. If you are a photographer, bring a tripod if you can. Between the clouds and thick... More

We were able to walk the trail to the falls on New Year's Day - and what a great start to the year. No crowds, a chill in the air, clean oxygenated air from all the trees, moss & lichen clinging to everything, the trickling of water running in the creek and later the tremendous energy of the falls. All... More

The drive from hwy-101 is a bit rough, but well worth the time. Any car can make the trip to the trailhead. Beautiful 1/4 mile hike. The trail is well maintained with a few steps to make the steeper section easier to climb. The end of the trail gives a beautiful view of Munson Creek Falls

Easy to find and beautiful little drive just south of Tillamook. The falls are not so much a "hike" it's super easy and perfect for little ones.

We have visited this lovely falls a number of times. It is definitely one of the best waterfalls in the Oregon coast area. Fall is a good time of year to visit, or perhaps early Spring, as the falls is much more viewable when the trees are without leaves. Also suggest visiting Drift Creek Falls near Lincoln City!

The location is a hit remote, but well worth it. Gorgeous waterfalls in a natural setting. You will need to walk about 1/4 mile from your car to reach the falls, but it is an easy trail for the most part. It is like walking through a lush rainforest - reminded me of my trip to Costa Rica.

We hiked a short bit (perhaps 1/3 mile or so) towards the falls and could hear them but never really got a great view because the trail has been closed/blocked off. Many teens were climbing over the barrier and continuing on, but we did not. We ran into an older couple (perhaps in their late 70s) who said they've been... More
