Black Hole Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Black Hole Falls, North Siouxon Creek (bobcat)

Description

Black Hole Falls is a thundering 50-foot waterfall on North Siouxon Creek. The creek is constricted as it plunges through dark basalt ramparts and a large pool churns with turbulence. The sun doesn’t reach down here most of the year, and temperatures are many degrees cooler than above on the main trail. You can reach some mossy rocks and a small cobble beach to tarry awhile before you begin the hike back. In late summer, the falls are not nearly as ominous looking, but the amphitheater is still a shady, peaceful and isolated refuge.
