You must do this hike! If you are not a very good walker, at least go to both waterfalls which are accessible from the parking lots. The lower falls is a short hike steep downhill (but a great path and then of course you need to go uphill) and the upper falls is a shorter hike with only a short... More

Short and easy walk leads to two beautiful falls. Easy parking too. Worth the stop if you're going across Hwy 20.

This was an amazing stop. Quick and easy enough that my nearly 80 year old mother was able to walk out to see the falls. Challenging enough options that the four teenagers were busy exploring for almost an hour!

The McKenzie Santiam loop drive is 88 miles long and offers many opportunities to stop and enjoy the varied scenic attractions. You probably can't stop every place you would like and still finish in a single day, so you need to prioritize where you want to stop. And these two falls should be your top priority IMHO. Both falls are... More

Sahalie Falls is a majestic and very forceful waterfall with easy access right off of Highway 126. We visited on a late Thursday afternoon, and there were still a lot of people there. We hiked a little further down the trail fron Sahalie but didn't realize there was another waterfall only a 1/2 mile away. Instead we walked along the... More

We saw Sahalie Falls in June 2016. It was so easy to get to, yet there weren't crowds of people. We had our two kids (ages 5 & 3) with us as well as our dog. We were happy to be able to see such an amazing place with the kids & dog in tow. It's even handicap accessible. We... More

Two incredibly beautiful falls. Both are no more than a quarter mile apart. The path is well maintained and a very easy walk. If you're in the area don't miss this treasure.

We loved both falls and they were super easy to get to. The little hike/walk from Sahalie to Koosah was easy but beautiful! Lots of moss covered rocks and trees that follow the river trail. Just gorgeous!

Park your car a the Sahalie Falls parking lot. The waterfall is right next to the parking lot and you will be blown away with it's beauty. Definitely continue on the trail along the river to the Koosah Falls. It's about 1/2 mile. Don't give up, the Koosah Falls are even more impressive.
