What are some of the best waterfall hikes in Oregon?

How does tackling three waterfall hikes in one day sound to you? Good? Great! Let's head to Oregon’s spectacular Umpqua National Forest, a place that is positively overflowing with beautiful waterfall hikes. Three of the best trails are nestled in an old-growth forest, all within five miles of each other. The first waterfall hike on our list is Moon Falls, a half-mile trail that's short, sweet, and pretty darn perfect. Pinard Falls and Spirit Falls are the other cascades in this waterfall hike and they are each quite lovely, especially after a healthy spring rain!
