Beautiful anytime of year and stunning when in full throat, Abiqua Falls is a fantastic off -the-beaten-path destination. Though surrounded by patches of clear-cut above, once down at creek level, the scenery is as good as it gets. Have a camera handy, as there may not be a single unphotogenic angle to shoot. Nestled in the hills above the small town of Scotts Mills hides a waterfall lover’s dream. Getting to Abiqua Falls is part trek, part hike, and part scramble. The 92-foot falls tumbles into a massive arena of columnar basalt, colored red and green by lichens and moss.
