These are thunderous and majestic falls by the main highway, there is plenty of space around to park and it's a nice easy hike for a postcard type of picture.

Start at the reservoir road below Koosah Falls and hike up right side trail. it is a loop trail. You cross the river above Sahalie Falls and come down the other side. BEST

If you're remotely close to Eugene, OR you must travel up river to witness both falls, clear lake, fish lake and blue pool. Do it!

This is one of our favorite walks. Between two waterfalls following the rushing river the whole way. Just gorgeous for nature lovers.

A lot of people don't know but you an loop around the river via a bridge and come right back to where you started. Easy hike, but it can be slippery.

We parked at Koosah Falls and hiked our way up to Sahalie Falls on the peaceful waterfall trail. Once we were done at Sahalie, we went back the same way we came. It was a very enjoyable hike and the scenery beautiful.

They are both worth a visit, IMO. And, if you go to the Mt. Hood one, you can also take in Umbrella Falls via a nice trail or by road. If you visit in the summer, you'll see plenty of wildflowers as well.
