Located in Scott Mills, Oregon, Upper Butte Creek Falls is a 26ft waterfall located near the popular Abiqua Falls. With easy access and a short hike, this is a must do for waterfall lovers.

From Scott Mills Follow Crooked Finger RD NE for 13.3 Miles to the Upper Butte Creek Trailhead. The last 2-3 miles or so is gravel road with some potholes but most cars shouldn't have a problem.

The path down to the falls starts near the bathrooms. A short .3 mile walk on a few switchbacks and you're meet with Upper Butte Creek Falls. This hike is a great hike and easy hike for all family members.

More Bang For Your Buck

Not only is this a beautiful, easy hike to the falls you see in this picture but there are three more falls and miles of views from a cliff. While driving on the dirt road you can begin to feel like you are on the wrong path. It is a logging road and there is no parking fee as well as an outhouse at the parking spot-small about for three cars-but no one else is out here.
