Discover Oregon’s Waterfalls

Oregon boasts more than 238 waterfalls scattered across the state, including 77 in the Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge Region alone. But the one that tops everyone’s list is Multnomah Falls. Saved from fires, the legendary Multnomah Falls Lodge is the starting point for the climb upwards to the Falls.

In Central Oregon, plan a hike to see Tumalo Falls in Bend, or the Sahalie and Koosah Falls, which are off of the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass in Sisters. Lee Falls in Gaston, inside Greater Portland, is a hidden gem. It requires an hour-long trek from the SW Lee Falls Road gate, but the path is largely flat.

Sweet Creek Falls reveals 11 waterfalls at the end of an easy hike in Mapleton, on the Oregon Coast. Rainie Falls in Grants Pass, Southern Oregon often reveals salmon and steelhead at the end of a 3.6-mile trail. Watson Falls, in Idleyld, is among the highest waterfalls in the State, with a fall of 272 feet.

Willamette Valley is also filled with stunning waterfalls. Among the most popular: Diamond Creek Falls in Oakridge (250 feet), Salt Creek Falls in Oakridge (286 feet) and South Falls in Silver Falls State Park.

Multnomah Falls

A must-see attraction not far from the Portland Metro Area, the beautiful Multnomah Falls are near Troutdale.

A short five-minute walk allows you to see this breath-taking 611-foot waterfall and to feel the cool spray of water at the base.

Those wanting a closer look, can walk along the paved trail to Benson Bridge, spanning the falls at its first tier.

Be sure to visit the gift shop and restaurant inside the historic 1925 Multnomah Falls Lodge.

Salt Creek Falls

As you head through the Cascades region, make a stay in nearby Oakridge and check out the Salt Creek Falls, one of the most brilliant and stunning natural formations and waterways in the state.

Visited by many, Salt Creek Falls is found just off the Willamette Highway near Too Much Bear Lake.

One of the top attractions within the Willamette National Forest, Salt Creek Falls features a day use area for a small fee.

The falls at Salt Creek Falls is 286 feet high, and ranks as the second tallest in the state of Oregon.
