How many waterfalls near me are there in Oregon?
The Beaver State is a dream destination for waterfall chasers, boasting no less than 238 falls -- and those are just the named waterfalls. There are many, many more unnamed falls you'll find along the trails, especially after a big rain or ice melt. All across the state, from the coast to the high desert, you'll find some of the best cascades in the Pacific Northwest. While Columbia River Gorge and Silver Falls State Park are the two places most commonly associated with Oregon waterfalls, there are plenty of other falls all across the state! In addition to the above bucket list, here are some of our top easy-access waterfalls in Oregon; take a look and plan some quick-and-easy waterfall-chasing adventures!
