Easy waterfall hike at Cascadia State Park.

Soda Creek Falls flows 150 feet down a curvy basalt rock groove at Cascadia State Park. The trail follows Soda Creek through a lush Oregon rain forest. The site was a former hotel and health spa with the mineral water from the creek as the main attraction. The park has a small campground, and picnic area. The nearby Santiam River offers swimming and fishing. 

Cascadia State Park is 14 miles east from Sweet Home on Highway 20. The trail is between the two day use parking areas and follows the creek North.
