Amazing day trip will please your senses❗️ Photo perfect and a early morning retreat as parking can be a little more challenging as well as the warm weather👌

I love this place! It's such a beautiful spot for a short or long hike. However, it's crowded and I won't go near this place on a weekend or holiday.

Base viewing area is right off the parking lot. Easy & short walk to the top of the falls viewing area. A great little short trip for a great view!

This is a must-see in Bend. Very close to town. Funny thing, you start out on the most perfectly paved road this side of the Cascades, but it changes to one of the roughest gravel roads about the 2/3 point. Any vehicle can make it...More

Beautiful, breathtaking waterfall. Multiple view points to view the falls. Short hike to the top, about five minutes. Easy for young kids.

And I've seen dozens of them all over the state. This beauty is easy to get to from Bend if you don't mind driving a couple miles on gravel. Very popular spot (picnicking here as well as fall gazing), probably best to visit in the...More

Approached on a reasonable gravel road, Tumalo Falls is a spectacular waterfall which can be seen without a hike. A walk to the top of the falls is available. Very close to Bend for easy access.

Nice place to visit. We went to the falls on a Thursday morning in early June. Hardly anyone was there and we had an enjoyable stroll to the top of the falls. Very easy to reach and the falls are in a lovely area.

Easy access to the viewing area. There is an additional trail to the top of the falls, worth it but steep.

Not sure from home but there is a map posted as you enter the area from the parking lot with all the trails shown, good hiking!

Road open now(2017)? I''m seeing quite the divergence of opinion as to whether it is a hike or not. One states you can drive to the viewpoint and take a "short, steep" hike to another viewpoint. How accurate is this description? I'm trying to gauge how much time we need. Thanks so much.

What dates are the roads open to the falls for driving. A short hike is okay, but we are not hikers.
