This is one of the premier hikes in Oregon for waterfall lovers. At least three sizable cascades and as many as a dozen smaller falls populate the scenic creeks along the way. And it is all highlighted by the massive Tumalo. From the trailhead near the restrooms, climb a short way to a very popular lower viewpoint of Tumalo Falls. Lighting can be tricky here, so unless it’s an overcast day, you may want to return to this spot after the hike to try pictures in full afternoon light. Continue along the main path, and a short distance later, stay right at a junction. The forest here is rather new, having recovered from a 1979 forest fire.
