Discover this stunning Oregon waterfall near the Willamette National Forest.
Downing Creek Falls is located southeast of Salem, Oregon, about halfway between the Willamette and Mt. Hood National Forests. Follow the simple out-and-back trail and be awe-inspired by this picturesque cascading waterfall. Depending on how much rainfall there has been, you may also see a lower waterfall along the way. The trail is short (about one-mile round-trip) but often slippery, so watch your step and wear appropriate hiking boots while hiking here.
All are welcome to hike this Oregon waterfall year-round, but late spring or fall may be the optimal seasons to visit. Downing Creek Falls follows an old logging road and is typically not nearly as busy as other Oregon waterfalls due to its secluded location. Come and see this west coast waterfall the next time you're in the Pacific Northwestern United States.
