Salt Creek Falls, at 284 feet high, is second in Oregon only to Multnomah Falls, and this short hike (0.4 mile one-way) is absolutely spectacular. A final 0.1 mile beyond the “official” hike is far too steep for inclusion, but you are welcome to try it. In 0.4 mile, the trail takes you from the parking lot to the cliff edge, 50 feet above the top of Salt Creek Falls, then down to an observation deck 100 feet above the bottom of the falls. The final 0.1 mile descends to the edge of the collecting pool at the base of the falls.
