Alsea Falls
Alsea Falls, (#42 on the Oregon Trail of Waterfalls map) spills down smooth rocks into a nice swimming hole making it a rather scenic waterfall. Surrounding the falls, especially when the river is lower, are smooth rock slabs that, on clear days, attract sunbathers and swimmers.

For the Best Oregon Waterfalls with spectacular Wildflower Bloom start at the Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort parking lot, take the service road up to Upper Heather Canyon Falls (#22) then hike the Timberline Trail past Pencil Falls (#21) and back down to the lodge.

Elk Creek Falls

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

Elk Creek Falls
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.

Golden Falls

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.

Steelhead Falls and waterfall wednesday

Steelhead Falls and Waterfall Wednesday in Oregon

Steelhead Falls It’s only about a half mile from the trailhead to Steelhead Falls on the Deschutes River in Central Oregon. But in geologic time, it’s a few million years. Colorful grooves decorate cliffs and show the erosion of time. Wildflowers dot the slopes in the spring and golden eagles soar overhead. Hike down for a picnic, fish in the Deschutes River and explore the rocky shores. A serene spot to let the sound of the falls erase the world around you.

Willamette Falls is the largest waterfall by volume in the Northwest, dropping 42 feet over a horseshoe-shaped ledge with a crest length of approximately 1,500 feet.

According to Oregon Geographic Names, the Willamette River was named for an Indian settlement somewhere in the vicinity of Oregon City known as “Wal-lamt”, which may have meant “spill water”, a reference to the falls.

There are several viewpoints of the falls available, mostly from above. But we found the most exciting and up-close view of The Falls was on a jet boat excursion on the Willamette River. Take the 32-mile trip up and down the Willamette River to the majestic Willamette Falls.

The Fulton House Bed and Breakfast, located in Southwest Portland and one block from Willamette Park and the Willamette River and the Willamette Greenway.

With mass transportation nearby you can set out to explore Portland, visit the famous medical facilities at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) via the Portland Aerial Tram up “Pill Hill”, or take a jet boat tour up river to Willamette Falls.

Our Chasing Waterfalls and Oregon Waterfall Wednesdays series continues. According to Northwest Waterfall Survey there are well over 1000 waterfalls in Oregon! We’ve set out to witness the beauty of as many as we can. We’ll share our finds with you, our guests, so you too can set out to Chase Waterfalls.
