Clearwater Falls and Waterfall Wednesday in Oregon

With winter and spring come winter storms and snow pack melt, supplying Oregon scenic rivers the water needed to create our wildly beautiful and renowned waterfalls.

Clearwater Falls – on of the Umpqua River Highway Waterfalls, #55 on the Oregon Trail of Waterfalls Map

Clearwater Falls‘High up in the Umpqua River drainage, the spring fed Clearwater River bubbles out of the ground and starts flowing through placid pools and never ending logjams. The ground around the falls is permeated with soft soil and thousands of intertwined roots, allowing the river to seep in and out of the ground at will. The result is a waterfall that appears to be springing from the ground. As mentioned, the Clearwater River is spring fed, and is one of the most consistent streams in the northwest in terms of flow, so visiting any time of the year will yield more or less the same results.’ Northwest Waterfall Survey

It’s certainly not too early to start planning your Oregon vacation that should involve chasing waterfalls. Our Oregon Trail of Waterfalls Map was created with your planning in mind. We included where to stay, things to do in Oregon, where to eat and of course, where to find some of the very best Oregon Waterfalls.
