Drift creek falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Drift Creek Falls from the shore of Drift Creek (Paul Gerald)
Drift Creek Falls from the Suspension Bridge (Paul Gerald)



There are at least two waterfalls in Oregon named Drift Creek Falls. This one is about 10 miles east of Lincoln City, near the coast. An unnamed side creek drops 80 feet into Drift Creek. The falls are probably best viewed from the Drift Creek Falls Suspension Bridge, but the trail continues from the bridge down to creek level. The falls are often shaded, but are worth a trip any time of day.
