This Secluded Spring-Fed Waterfall Hiding In The Oregon Forest Will Make You Believe In Magic
This summer, why not go someplace magical? Clearwater Falls is an enchanting hidden gem waterfall nestled into the scenic Umpqua National Forest. This small, stunning waterfall is easy to get to, and it looks just like a fairytale. Check it out:
Located in the Umpqua National Forest, Clearwater Falls is a small but spectacular spring-fed waterfall that cascades through an emerald green landscape.
This 30-foot waterfall flows majestically over mossy green rocks and large fallen logs, gently weaving through the greenery before pouring into a calm blue pool.
Upstream, water bubbles out of a natural spring in the ground and flows onward to form Clearwater River. The constant flow of crystal clear water assures that Clearwater Falls flows year-round.
Encountering this lovely little waterfall is a magical experience. To get there, park at the Clearwater Falls parking lot off Highway 138 and take a short, leisurely stroll through the old growth forest along on Clearwater River.
If you'd like to spend the night, you can book a campsite at the nearby Clearwater Falls Campground.
This unique, little-known forest cascade is a peaceful place to relax, explore, and soak up the beauty of Oregon.
