Announcing a new Meetup for Eugene Hiking & Camping Meetup Group!What
: Sahalie FallsWhen
: Sunday, July 18,[masked]:00 AMWhere
: Springfield Albertsons - 58th & Main
This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Oregon. It's right on 126 about 60 miles from Springfield.
We'll hike the 2.6 mile loop that goes past 2 waterfalls on both sides of the McKenzie River. If we have 2 cars, we'll leave one at Clear Lake and hike another 1.4 miles to the Clear Lake Resort. They have a snack bar and rowboat rentals, so we can see the preserved underwater forest at the bottom of the lake. This 4-mile hike has about 500 feet of elevation gain.
It should take less than 8 hours total, so we'll be back before 5 p.m. if all goes well. We'll meet in Springfield, since it's on the way. If you need a ride from Eugene, say so in your RSVP and hopefully someone will arrange to pick you up.
You can also meet us at the Sahalie Falls lot. Drive 60 miles east of Springfield on 126. About a mile past the Koosah Falls sign, turn left (left turn lane) at the Sahalie Falls sign. We should be there around 10:30 a.m.
