Frenchie Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Frenchie Falls, Silver Falls State Park (bobcat)


Frenchie Falls is a small seasonal waterfall that spouts off the rim at the first switchback leading down to South Falls in Silver Falls State Park. The 48-foot waterfall, which is usually dry by the beginning of summer, can be seen from a short, signed spur trail.

The waterfall is named after Roland Lecompte, nicknamed "Frenchie", who worked on the management team at the state park in the 1960s.
