  • These are awesome falls. It is a very nice park with good trails. It is an easy stop on the way to Waldo Lake and Crater Lake.

  • Well... After turning left at the first fork and driving past the "snow day use area" and winding around on gravel roads for awhile. Our group went back and turned right staying on the paved road and enjoyed stopping here. There is a nice parking lot. The main bathrooms are closed, but they have clean porta potties. There is a historic display (for those interested in the details). The walk to the falls is paved and wheelchair accessable, although there are some sections that aren't wheel chair accessible and the stairs are a bit "rustic". As a safety note for those with small children, there are parts along the wall a wiggly kid could slip and fall. This view pont isn't for those afraid of heights, the view is stunning! There is a trail head here for those who enjoy hiking. For the adventurous who decide to drive on the gravel roads they get a bit rough and one road leads up to the railroad tracks (lots of metal in the road at that point) another road crosses a narrow bridge over the water.
  • Second Tallest Waterfall in Oregon, Moderate Hiking Trail, that almost takes you to the base of the falls At the top of the falls its Wheelchair Acceptable. The Forestry Dept as done alot of Work on the trail going down new posts and chain rails Its worth Visiting You need the forest pass or the fee is $5.00 But its worth it the Fall is amazing There is also another trail there called Diamond Creek If your in the area stop by and check it out
