Easy to moderate I mile hike there to a 50-foot glorious waterfall.dog and kids friendly*easy parking. 

This hike starts at the main parking lot about a mile away from the falls. The falls are accessed via a very easy, well graded trail developed and maintained by the Oregon BLM.The hike through the forest and pine trees make it for a fantastic and fairy tale-like hike. When you arrive at Susan Creek Falls, picnic tables are provided for a nice morning/afternoon/evening destination for a family outing. The beauty and power of the falls are definitely draw dropping to the fullest. As any hiking or nature enthusiast should, take it in and capture the moment.

When you're finished, you'll head back the same way you came. When it comes to spectacular scenery, there's nothing better than having it just a stone throw away! But sometimes that comes with a cost! To respect and preserve our natures backyard, please pack out what you pack in and report anybody vandalizing. We can make it such a better place if we unite to solve the problem we're being so accustom to seeing all to often on beaches, trails, campsites and plus more.

Enjoy the hike and happy trails!
