“Cascading Water Over Moss Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was one of the greenest places I have ever seen on earth. With falling water, rocks, ferns and moss. There was a short hike uphill to the falls from the parking lot. There were so many great shots along the way as the streams below, that are generated by the falls, were so serene and peaceful.

The giant boulders full of ferns and moss were beautiful. We did this on the way to Crater Lake National Park. Our drive on this road (HWY 138) from the coast to Watson Falls was lovely.

“Nice climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This waterfall can be slightly seen in the distance from the parking area but to see it close up requires a fairly strenuous climb up the path through the woods. The path is easy to follow but is fairly steep. I felt it was worth the climb to see the Falls plus I liked the physical exertion.

Even for youngsters! We use to live at Toketee and always took visitors there as easy access and a do-able hike for even two yr olds!

“A short hike, straight up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

There are many beautiful falls off the North Umpqua highway. We stopped at the trail for Watson Falls because we thought it would be a quick hike at only a half-mile. We could hear the falls from the parking lot, so we figured it couldn't be far. We missed the sign telling us about the 370 foot climb. If we hadn't, we could have looked just above the sign and seen the falls, way above us. You don't actually need to take the last series of switchbacks that end at a viewpoint about halfway up the falls. There is a point about two-thirds of the way that actually gives you the best view of the entire falls. At 272 feet, the falls are spectacular even in August. They must be unbelievable in the spring. Overall, as good as Multnomah Falls in the Columbia Gorge, but make sure you're up for a steep and rocky trail.
