The falls are absolutely stunning and a must do when in the area. A short hike that anyone can do and you follow a river so lots of photo opportunities. A little crowded for my taste but a great hike nonetheless.

Easy to get to, both falls were very nice. Koosah is easy to drive by, have to really be looking for the sign. Enjoyed both of them.

Cannot say enough about this place. This fall is very majestic. So peaceful since not many people know about it. A must see if you are over near Sisters.

I think the address on this profile is wrong it leads to an equestrian faculty and it shows no water in the map. Can someone update the address?

The location of the icon on the map is indeed incorrect. I have submitted a correction.
Can anyone tell me if the Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River Trail is different than the Sahalie Falls at Mt Hood?

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.
