Gorgeous and cool!!! We went multiple times during the summer. It offers a nice easy to moderate hike along the river. On the REALLY hot days, this was my go to. It's about 15-20 degrees cooler near the falls and river.

These falls have wheelchair accessible paths, though tree roots do make rolling somewhat of a challenge. The viewpoints are well away from the falls, so a certain amount of telephoto it nice. Your results might be nice enough to enlarge and frame for your wall.

Just off the highway, and an easy walk from parking, this stunning sight can be approach from above or below. Both are worthwhile.

The falls are absolutely stunning and a must do when in the area. A short hike that anyone can do and you follow a river so lots of photo opportunities. A little crowded for my taste but a great hike nonetheless.

These are two of the many beautiful water falls you will find in Oregon. Both falls are a short walk from their parking lots. There are several good overlocks to view these falls from. Falls are a short drive from Sisters Oregon, which is a...More

I think the address on this profile is wrong it leads to an equestrian faculty and it shows no water in the map. Can someone update the address?

The location of the icon on the map is indeed incorrect. I have submitted a correction.
Can anyone tell me if the Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River Trail is different than the Sahalie Falls at Mt Hood?

They are both worth a visit, IMO. And, if you go to the Mt. Hood one, you can also take in Umbrella Falls via a nice trail or by road. If you visit in the summer, you'll see plenty of wildflowers as well.
