I had the pleasure to visit these 2 falls during a weekend visit to the area. The walk is short. Only about 2 miles but the 2 waterfalls were great. The river runs right by the path so you can get up close and personal....More

Right off the highway, you can park and walk just a few yards to have an incredible view of the falls. There is more hiking available, but not necessary.

These are thunderous and majestic falls by the main highway, there is plenty of space around to park and it's a nice easy hike for a postcard type of picture.

Start at the reservoir road below Koosah Falls and hike up right side trail. it is a loop trail. You cross the river above Sahalie Falls and come down the other side. BEST

If you're remotely close to Eugene, OR you must travel up river to witness both falls, clear lake, fish lake and blue pool. Do it!

This is one of our favorite walks. Between two waterfalls following the rushing river the whole way. Just gorgeous for nature lovers.

Hiked the trail from the Clear Lake Resort to both water falls. It was a hot afternoon, but most of the trail is adjacent to the river where the temperature is significantly cooler. It's an easy hike for those who are accustomed to walking a...More

I was driving the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway while in the area for the solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the McKenzie Pass was closed due to a wildfire, which also made viewing the surrounding mountains impossible. But this waterfall loop trail was easily accessed from Highway...More

They are both worth a visit, IMO. And, if you go to the Mt. Hood one, you can also take in Umbrella Falls via a nice trail or by road. If you visit in the summer, you'll see plenty of wildflowers as well.
