An easy 1/2 mile hike (steep and rocky in some places) that leads you to a beautiful waterfall. If you wish to continue your hike further it goes in parallel with Deschutes river and has a spot that you can get into the water if...More
A wonderful place in Central Oregon! The hike is short but has some technical steep sections. The falls are worth the trip though. A great spot in the hot summer months for a cool off swim. The water is always cold so be prepared!
