OUR  FAVORITE WATERFALLS IN OREGON

The upper falls are not as tall as the lower falls, but they are just as powerful and just as beautiful. We recommend taking the whole loop.

LATOURELL FALLS

TAMANAWAS FALLS

You’ll hike along two bodies of water. The first was a grey glacier river, and the second was crystal clear. The clear water followed most of the hike, with mini waterfalls the whole way.

BRIDAL VEIL FALLS

Most people who visit just linger a smidge. You can, however, make a longer visit of this waterfall and jump from the rock that Cooper is sitting on.

KOOSAH FALLS

The Koosah Falls are breathtaking and give you the impression you’re in a remote part of the globe…not just a few hundred yards from a major highway.

The total hike is 1.6 miles (a loop) and includes two short spurs. One to the lower falls, pictured above, and the other to the upper falls.

PROXY FALLS

STEELHEAD FALLS

The waterfall is beautiful and certainly stands alone, but if you ask me, the best part is cliff jumping right across from the falls. Yes, the water is cold, but it is so much fun!

The signs along this short trail call the area an “enchanted forest” and I could not agree more. You’ll follow the creek to the waterfall, under a dense canopy of trees.

LITTLE ZIG ZAG FALLS

RAMONA FALLS

The tricky part is crossing Sandy River. It’s grey but it’s not dirty; it’s a glacial river. You can’t climb much closer than I am in this photo.
