What are some little-known waterfalls in Oregon?

Well-known cascades like Multnomah Falls and Silver Falls tend to steal the spotlight (and for good reason, because they are magnificent!), but there’s so much more to Oregon’s waterfalls than a few superlative superstars. Take Hug Point Falls, for example. Located on a picturesque piece of Oregon shoreline, Hug Point State Recreation Site is one of Oregon’s most incredible treasures: the wondrous Hug Point Falls. Hug Point Falls is a 15-foot waterfall that gently cascades down a sandstone drop-off along the Oregon Coast. It will completely take you by surprise, and is just one of numerous little-known waterfalls in Oregon that are worth a visit!
