The trail to get here was more interesting than the falls themselves. We ventured off of the main highway to follow the directions to this remote waterfall and very soon were driving on narrow dirt roads. We almost turned back as we were driving in our coveted Infiniti Q50 and didn't want to damage anything on the car. It didn't... More

I felt that I was entering a hidden rain forest type of atmosphere, once I had parked my car. It takes a bit to find this, but follow the rough road, as it is worth the effort. It is a short trail, but it is a beautiful mix of trees, moss, bubbling river fed by the falls, and an easy... More

Only 1/4 mile hike from the parking lot. Oregon's highest coast range waterfall at 130' or so. Easy to get to by following the signs south of the Tillamook airport off Hwy 101.

We found out about this falls from the Information Center in Cannon Beach. Since we love watefalls and hiking we had to go check it out. The trail to get close to the falls was marked "Trail Closed" but that didn't deter people from going around and trying to get closer. We were there in September so there wasn't much... More

It's not big crashing ocean waves or haystack rocks but it's a peaceful little hike to a cute waterfall. We saw slugs and amazing greenery along the way.

If you like a bumpy ride on a gravel roadway for a short walk through the forest to see a partly obscured waterfall, this is the stop for you. If you feel like some time in the woods or can't see anything better, than stop here.

This modest waterfall is unique in that it's coastal. Unusual geologic formation, quiet parking lot, short walk, free. It's worth a quick detour off 101, and a must if your interest is geology.

Falls is a fairly short drive off of 101 down some bumpy narrow roads but there is signage directing you. Ample parking and on the day I went I was the only person out there at the time. Can hear the falls once you get out of your car and is just a short 1/4 mile walk to see it.... More

Literature said this was great falls to see. Took a while to find. Drive was down a long drive in woods. Then needed to walk to falls. But the trail was closed when you got close to seeing the falls. Could only see the top of falls not the whole length of falls. Given the falls you see in Columbia... More

Just about anyone can make this short, easy hike through the rainforest, but we were expecting a more impressive falls. It is high, but the water flow wasn't that great and it was a bit disappointing compared to other falls in Oregon.
