Golden Falls

Golden Falls and Waterfall Wednesday in Oregon

Golden Falls is the cornerstone to Golden and Silver Falls State Park, east of Coos Bay, and is among the largest and most powerful waterfalls found in the Coast Range of Oregon.
Golden FallsIn the winter and early spring months a considerable volume of water thunders over this impressive waterfall, first dropping into a narrow slot carved into the side of a lofty cliff, and then spouting outwards from the slot about halfway down the cliff face.

The falls was measured to stand 254 feet tall, which makes it among the tallest waterfalls west of the Willamette River in Oregon.

Chase Oregon Waterfalls with us by following the Pinterest and Facebook pages of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.

It’s possible to drive the entire Pacific Coast Scenic Byway in a single day. But why would you when you have 6 member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild from Cannon Beach to Port Orford?

Oregon B&Bs Draw Doodle Map of Must-See State Waterfalls for Socially-Distant Adventures

The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is putting pen to paper to draw a doodle map and encourage you to fill your tanks, hit the road, and seize the summer – one waterfall at a time.

The Oregon Trail of Waterfalls, as it will be called, will be a beautiful, limited edition, double-sided map. The huge piece of art measuring 24-inches across and 18-inch down will be carefully folded and mailed free-of-charge to travelers upon request, while supplies last.

The map will also highlight various bits of information, like the many Oregon food trails and pods, Instagram-worthy drives, popular in-state movie spots, and scenic bikeways.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to numerous requests for the physical map we’ve no more copies. But you can still download a digital version of the Oregon Trail of Waterfalls Map


Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is ready to share Oregon with you: it’s environment, culture, and heritage. Combine gracious hospitality with ambiance at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.

Hospitality Update: Things are looking up. The CDC has lifted the mask mandate for fully vaccinated individuals and while Oregon is following this guidance, some inns may still be requiring masks to be worn in some situations. Please check with individual B&Bs to inquire about their specific policies. Each Oregon county, depending on its vaccination and case numbers, are also adjusting their regulations accordingly. 

Let’s all be respectful and safe and follow the guidance of our individual counties, inns and businesses. While it’s almost safe enough to climb aboard that travel train it’s still a little scary but we’re ready when you are! Our inns will continue to do everything in our power to keep you safe. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they just might be.
