My wife and I have been a couple times with our two year old. Great short hike to do with kids. Lots of big trees, easy hike, and very scenic waterfall and stream.

You can reaxh the waterfall with a moderate hike. If you are willing to do some rock scrambling, you can ecen reach the base pool. A nice break in our drive fron Crater Lake to Roseburg.

I am 57 and have lived here all of my life. I have visited Watson and other waterfalls in the area off and on over all of my life. They are spectacular.

We stopped at Watson Falls on our drive from Crater Lake National Park to stay in Roseburg. It was a fairly easy hike in the woods and along the river to see a beautiful waterfall. Very green, lush landscape and huge trees!
