Hike to Pheasant Creek Falls
Oregon › Niagara Falls Trail
Added by Jason Horstman
Witness a 100-foot tiered amphitheater waterfall flowing at its peaks during the winter months with this short out-and-back hike requiring minimal effort through old growth forest.
The hike to Pheasant Creek Falls is just short continuation of nearby Niagara Falls. After reaching Niagara Falls, continue on the trail for about another 300 feet and you'll reach the more impressive, Pheasant Creek Falls.
For more detailed information including a trail map and directions to the trailhead, visit fs.usda.gov.
Getting to the trailhead can be a bit tricky, as one online source suggested turning off FR 8533 prematurely. From Tillamook, drive south on Hwy 101, until reaching Blaine Road, which you take for 6 miles. At Blaine Junction travel east on Upper Nestucca River Road for 5.8 miles to Forest Service Road 8533. Go south 4.3 miles to Forest Service Road 8533-131. Turn right at the junction (there will be sign pointing towards Niagara Falls TH) and travel 0.7 miles to trailhead parking (approx coordinates: 45.213409,-123.626961).
