Great hike with beautiful views. The waterfalls were great. It was busy on a Sunday but well worth the hike.

I’m sure the falls are lovely, but we could not get there. Massive crowds on a Saturday 10:30 am in early October- gravel road that is barely wide enough for 2 way traffic with many cars parked on the roadside. Gave up and turned around. Probably need to go very early.

About 20-25 minutes east of Bend, Tumalo Falls is a great day or half day trip. We also saw a lot of bicyclists on the road between Bend and Tumalo. It is on US Forest land so requires a parking permit or America the Beautiful Pass. We went on a weekday afternoon in early September and it was crowded--difficult to find parking and we had to go back out and park along the road. It still wasn't a far walk to the waterfall, though. There were a lot of people on the path and overlook to the waterfall; I'm assuming it would be much more crowded on a weekend. But, the falls are spectacular and we enjoyed seeing them and walking a short distance on the path along the river past the falls. There are other hiking/walking paths, but we did not take the time to explore them all. It's worth the trip, but I'd suggest a weekday if possible.

The waterfall is lots of fun and enjoyable for most! The waterfall is about 20 minutes outside of Bend. A portion of the road to the falls is unpaved. There are restrooms at the trailhead but no water fountains. There is a $5 fee for access to the park. There is a ledge right at the parking lot that you see the waterfall, but I recommend walking to the top. There is a short, high hike to the top where you can step out right at top of the falls. You can continue along the river on the trail. I recommend going down towards the falls. Halfway down (or up) the hill to the top of the falls, there is a small path towards the falls. The path is a little rougher. If you follow this path, you will be lead to the foot of the falls. It is steep at some points so it may not be ideal for children. Also (as most hikes near water) there are a lot of bugs so you may want to bring bug spray.

We had kids in our group, so this was an appropriate activity, but there were so many people, we had to park a half mile down the road. Also there was so much wildfire smoke, there wasn't much of a view. And too hot.
