Toketee Falls

Toketee Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The main draw along the OR 138 corridor, Toketee Falls is a favorite among photographers and casual travelers alike. Framed by visually stunning columnar basalt, it stands to reason that the name Toketee means “pretty” in Northwest Chinook jargon.

From the trailhead, follow the trail for 0.4 mile as it parallels the North Umqua River. The trail occasionally morphs into well-railed staircases that cling to panoramic canyon walls before arriving at a wooden viewing platform. The elevated view affords the classic, though frustratingly distant, view of Toketee Falls. Hike back the way you came.

This trail is super short in length and fairly easy to navigate, with a little up and down elevation, although to get down to the water level requires some steep scrambling that might be kind of unappealing for some folks. Some stairs with handrails have been constructed in some of the more steep, tricky places. Other parts of the trail have natural climb aids like water bars and rocks. Be sure to spend some time at the gorge above the falls - it's almost as amazing as the falls themselves. The platform at the end provides a terrific view. All in all, this is a really gorgeous hike with fantastic scenery and the photo opportunities are magnificent. It's a good idea to to bring some insect repellent since there are a lot of mosquitoes buzzing around, and go early in order to avoid the crowds. Also, Umpqua Hot springs is only a few miles up the road when you finish the hike. So, if you're making the drive all the way to out to Crater Lake (about a half hour away) or any other part of the Umpqua Forest, don't miss this beautiful waterfall!
