I haven't been there yet, but others tell me it is one of the prettiest waterfalls in the area.
This moderate hike is 4.4 miles round trip, with an 800 foot drop into the canyon, and an 800 foot climb back out. We'll pass the upper falls on our way to the lower falls at the bottom. If we're up for it, we'll continue down to Smith Creek and hike another 0.8 mile to the "Swimming Pool Falls." (6 mile hike) Bring your bathing suit and maybe some water shoes if you want to get wet.
To get to the trailhead, we'll drive 33 miles west of Eugene on 126, then 16 miles on mountain roads. It should take about 90 minutes to get there.
"Maybe" RSVP's will be changed to "No" an hour before the event.
We'll set up an alternate carpool location near Beltline and 126 if needed.
