How to Get There

6 months ago


The loop is about 9 miles in a semi circle with several roadside pickup areas very close by if you worry about having to walk that far in a single go. It has 9 amazing waterfalls several of which you get to walk under. You will want to take a camera with some extra batteries as you will find hundreds of things you will want to photograph. When I go I take my disabled 5 year old in a wagon and pull him around. There are a few star cases I pull him down that I'm sure freaks out some people to see but my son loves it :)

Nice Campground

This is a nice campground. Not much to do other than hike, but if that's all you like to do, then this is perfect! Great place to ride a bike as well!

This is one of the most amazing parks in Oregon and close to tons of other incredible falls. If you campgrounds are full there's nearby state forest.

This is a long journey so make sure to have lots of water and snacks! We brought a camel back and lunch for the trip and spent some time relaxing and playing in the water at upper north falls. We came here Mid August 2015 and found out how winter falls received its name.... turns out it isn't an active waterfall in the summer, or at least it wasn't while we were there. All the water falls seemed to be lower than usual as it is summer and also Oregon is currently in a drought, however the hike was still worth it to see 9 (instead of 10) breathtaking waterfalls! I also wanted to mention that while the camp area is clean, the showers are free, and water spigots are at every site... the campsites are pretty squished together so good luck if you have noisy neighbors who have toddlers running through your campsite....

The hike is great for even inexperienced hikers but beautiful enough to be worth it even for those who like a bigger challenge.
