About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This short but spectacular hike up a well-maintained dirt trail leads to the beautiful Tumalo Falls.

A bit of an incline, but it’s not bad considering how short it is from the parking area to the top of the falls.

You can continue on passed the falls on the North Fork trails for miles, and connect to other trails in the areas as well. Or just turn back and take the lollipop loop back down the parking area. This short little hike is perfect for a family outing and even more perfect for a picnic lunch on one of the many tables or along Tumalo Creek.
