Bridge Creek Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Bridge Creek Falls (bobcat)

Description

Bridge Creek Falls splashes down 35 feet in three tiers just off of Highway 6 near the Footbridge Trailhead. It can be visited as a part of a hike along the Wilson River Trail, or as a brief stopover on the way to or from the coast. There is a large parking pullout on the south side of the highway and an attractive path of stone steps leads up towards the falls. A small cistern at the base of the falls and remnants of piping suggest that the creek used to provide water for highway travelers.

Walking over the high footbridge on the Wilson River, you will get a good view of Lower Bridge Creek Falls, which spouts out of a culvert directly into the river at one of its narrowest points. Although these falls have been contained by highway engineers, they have always existed in this spot. Look for steelhead languishing in the clear river waters.
