“Absolutely Worth it!”

Sahalie and Koosah Falls
Ranked #2 of 28 things to do in Sisters

Attraction details
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Start at Koosah Falls (5 miles East of Sahalie) That way you do most of the uphill hiking at the begining of the Waterfalls Hike. There are many steps and, signs and even a nice log bridge along your way but the highlight for us was sitting on the opposite side of the entrance to Koosah Falls for lunch. Your view of the falls is much prettier here but there are many scenic stops along this rushing river. We went the last week in April and there were still quite a few patches of snow but you could still see the trail ( would'nt suggest going any earlier) by the footprints in the snow!

In fall the colors are amazing! The falls are well worth a short easy hike down to viewing area. Only a ways down river from Clear Lake, the head waters of the pristine McKenzie River.

If you are in the mood for a great easy hike there is three falls to see. The largest and coolest is close to parking lot and easy to get to.

I visited these falls for the first time last month and was amazed. I have driven by them for years and never stopped. The 'hike' is very easy and the river is gorgeous.
