This little gem is about 20 minutes from home, so we've been frequently in all seasons. Catch the falls after some good Oregon downpours and they are a roaring good time! A 1.6 mile loop has an elevation change of around 200 feet, so not...More

This has quickly become my favorite hiking trail in almost any season. The waterfalls are breathtaking. The paths are well kept. The views are spectacular. It is a real hidden treasure.

Well kept trails and beautiful anytime of the year and it's free. Bring your camera. There are a steep staircase, but there are also easy trails as well.

Convenient parking, hiking, and picnicking is available for a variety of skills / ability levels. Three distinct parking and "jump-off" areas. Can be done in a loop from any location.
