Elk Creek Falls and Waterfall Wednesday in Oregon

Elk Creek Falls is one of many waterfalls located within the small Elk Creek basin, just above the South Fork Coquille River.

Due to the constricted canyon and the thick forest growth lining the creek only the final 83-foot tall tier of the falls is clearly visible from the end of the short, easy trail used to access the falls.

Just downstream of the viewpoint for the falls, the trail intersects the Big Tree Trail, which leads moderately steeply up hill to a stand of old-growth trees, among which can be found the world’s largest living Port Orford Cedar tree – 12 feet in diameter and 230 feet tall.

It’s possible to drive the entire Pacific Coast Scenic Byway in a single day. But why would you when you have 5 member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild from Cannon Beach to Port Orford? Take a few days, take a few side trips and enjoy the ride. Elk Creek Falls is about an hour off of the Pacific Coast Highway. WildSpring Guest Habitat, Port Orford, is our closest inn to the Falls.
