Sahalie/Koosah Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This 2.8-mile loop hike visits two massive, thundering waterfalls, a river as comely as you could hope for, and viewpoint after viewpoint.

From the parking area, walk a couple hundred feet down to the lower viewpoint of Sahalie Falls. Continue downriver to the left. The water here runs forceful and clean, occasionally swirling in deep blue and green pools.

After 0.5 mile you’ll pass the equally impressive Koosah Falls. Interestingly, the words Sahalie and Koosah both mean “high” or “heaven” in Northwest Chinook jargon—fitting descriptions for both. You’ll soon encounter a handful of viewpoints, all with great views of the falls and the river. Continue hiking, avoiding any trails that lead up to the left."
