Salt Creek Falls reviews
This is a beautiful waterfall and is an easy walk to view. It was winter when we stopped, but we will definitely come back in the summer. more »
what a treat this was, about 1/2 way between Eugene and Highway 97, about the time you should be getting out to stretch your legs and breath some non air conditioned air, turn off either the stereo... more »
Very surprising perfect stop with a small hike.. perfect to stretch and take a break from driving to crater lake.
Breath taking. Easy access to Salt Creek Falls multiple Viewpoints. Clean bathrooms and well marked trails.
