Oregon’s Niagara Falls Is Too Beautiful For Words

Did you know what Oregon has its very own Niagara Falls? Hidden away in the Siuslaw National Forest is the beautiful, 107-foot-tall Niagara Falls. The waterfall is, coincidentally, named after Niagara Creek (a tributary of the nearby Nestucca River) — not the famous falls in New York.

But don’t be fooled; Oregon’s Niagara Falls is also stunningly beautiful. You can reach the waterfall at the end of a lovely 1-mile hike beginning a the Niagara Falls Trailhead. At the end of the trail, you’ll be greeted by amazing rock walls, a picnic table, and not just one, but two amazing waterfalls. Pheasant Creek Falls mists majestically over a moss-covered wall nearby. Keep in mind, the waterfalls change dramatically depending on the season. In the winter you’ll find rushing, thunderous falls, while in the summertime they are less intense and more ethereal-looking.

Here are photos of the two falls in April:
