Quartz Creek Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Quartz Creek Falls in the spring (bobcat)
Lower Quartz Creek Falls in the fall (bobcat)


Quartz Creek Falls is a pretty 25-foot high, 60-foot wide drop upstream from Quartz Creek's confluence with Straight Creek. A faint user trail leads to the beautiful pool below the falls. The falls themselves are around a bend and can be best viewed by stepping out into the stream.

Below the confluence with Straight Creek are Lower Quartz Creek Falls. These can only be viewed from above at low water (late summer/early fall) by recrossing Straight Creek at its mouth and then scrambling out onto the rocks. There is another beautiful turquoise-colored pool below these falls.
