These falls have wheelchair accessible paths, though tree roots do make rolling somewhat of a challenge. The viewpoints are well away from the falls, so a certain amount of telephoto it nice. Your results might be nice enough to enlarge and frame for your wall.

Sahalie Falls was a recommended attraction by our Bed & Breakfast hosts in Vida, OR. The falls are located in the Willamette National forest and boast foaming white water plunging 100 feet over a natural damn. We arrived in the rain which made the scenery extremely green and lush. The falls were beautiful! The mist from the falls mixed with... More

A group of us mountain biked the trail from just above Clear Lake down to Mackenzie Bridge. We took a $30 shuttle to the top from Mackenzie River Mountain Resort. Wow, what a trail!! Coming... More

The falls are absolutely stunning and a must do when in the area. A short hike that anyone can do and you follow a river so lots of photo opportunities. A little crowded for my taste but a great hike nonetheless.

These are two of the many beautiful water falls you will find in Oregon. Both falls are a short walk from their parking lots. There are several good overlocks to view these falls from. Falls are a short drive from Sisters Oregon, which is a neat small town.

These falls are beautiful. The walks to each of these falls is easy. Definitely work the stop to view these falls. The parking is limited at Sahalie Falls and very limited to Koosah Falls. Park at Sahalie and hike the short loop trail. Don't forget to visit the Blue Pool. Enter through the Trail Bridge trailhead for the access off... More

This was a nice stop to stretch our legs... The trail between Sahalie and Koosah Falls along the McKenzie River is well traveled with many beautiful view opportunities of old growth trees and the flowing waters. It is an easy trail to walk with some steps here and there so that does mean you will have some small ups and... More
