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

A lot of people don't know but you an loop around the river via a bridge and come right back to where you started. Easy hike, but it can be slippery.

We parked at Koosah Falls and hiked our way up to Sahalie Falls on the peaceful waterfall trail. Once we were done at Sahalie, we went back the same way we came. It was a very enjoyable hike and the scenery beautiful.

We found these falls by accident last summer and made sure we returned this summer. They are simply beautiful. The stop is well worth the very short walk down to the falls. I would make a point to see these beautiful falls if in the...More

Crowded trail, but impressive views of the falls. It is worth a short stop to hike between the two falls (both impressive to look at) There are parking areas at each of the falls, but most people park at the one without the campground.

These falls are so close to the road that you simply must pull over and take a peak. Just a short walk and you're there!

You can access this falls from at least three different areas, just depends on if you want to throw an easy hike in along the way. We parked at Carmen Reservoir and hiked up to the falls. They have built a couple of nice viewing...More

These falls are about a 5 minute car drive from each other. I believe you can hike from one to another, and if we had more time we would have done that. The falls are close to the parking lot so not a lot of...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.
