Winter Falls

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Winter Falls. (Steve Hart)
Winter Falls signs old and new. (Steve Hart)


Winter Falls gets its name from the fact that it only runs in the winter. In reality, it runs year round, but in the summer and early fall, it shrinks to a mere trickle. Winter Falls has the lowest volume of the ten major waterfalls in the state park and is definitely at its best in the winter or spring.

The water plunges for close to a hundred feet, then slides down the basalt wall to complete the 134 foot drop.
