There are many waterfalls in Oregon that are beautiful. There are already more than a handful that can be found there. However, with the number of people visiting the popular ones, sometimes it is good to have a waterfall all to yourself.
Lucky for you we have the inside scoop on four waterfalls that you can enjoy without much tourists and in peace.
Sahalie and Koosah Falls
Unlike other falls, the Sahalie and Koosah falls do not go dry in the summertime. These falls flow in all its majesty throughout all the seasons. It is for this reason that when hiking towards it, you will still need a jacket to keep you dry, even in the heat of summer.
These falls are seen south of Santiam Pass on Highway 126. You may choose to a 2.4-mile hike that passes these falls within the McKenzie River Trail.
If you are going in spring or early summer, be wary of snow that may fall.
Seen in the Columbia River Gorge, the Wahclella Falls is a destination for those who want a bit of an adventure to go to. Its location is in solitude and can be arrived at after a short 2.2-mile hike through the narrow and deep canyons.
Large boulders surround the area as thing waterfalls flow over them. Once you reach the Wahclella Falls, it proves to be quite a sight. It has a 60-foot drop that goes to a cavern below surrounded by mist.
If you are looking for the trail, all you need to do is head to Interstate 84, near the Cascade Locks at exit 40. Save this trip for a grand experience meant for a climactic end to the day.
White River Falls
At first glance, these waterfalls will look out of place. The environment around the White River Falls is quite dry and filled with numerous foothills.
The White River actually flows into Tygh Valley and blasts down three waterfalls. The first is the Lower White River Falls which is 21 feet high. The second is Celestial Falls at 41 feet, and the biggest one is White River Falls at a tall 75 feet.
In order to get to the White River Falls, begin at the state park trailhead to start your 1-mile round-trip hike to these three falls.
Hug Point Falls
Located just along the Oregon Coast beach, the Hug Point Falls is easy to spot to those who know where to look.
It is a quaint waterfall at only15 feet. Head to Hug Point Recreation site and hike to the north. Please be warned though that this hike must only be attempted at low tide. This fall is the only one that is obscured and hard to get to when the tide is in.
Afterwards, walk around Hug Point a bit and you will find the falls.
A romantic sunset viewing will prove to you just why it is called the Hug Point.
We hope you’re excited to head out and search for these waterfalls for yourself. Go out and there and make some memories.
