Curly Creek Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Curly Creek Falls in winter (only the upper arch showing) (bobcat)
Curly Creek Falls sans water (Steve Hart)


Curly Creek Falls is one of the more interesting waterfalls in our area. Curly Creek has eroded softer rock behind a hard lava formation creating two rock arches. During the highest flow, the water runs over the lower arch. With intermediate flow, the creek flows completely under both arches. In the late summer, the creek may run dry, leaving an empty channel.
