A short drive up the river are two spectacular waterfalls with easy access and a fantastic hike along the McKenzie River trail between the two. Don’t miss these icons of the river.
Sahalie and Koosah Falls are located along the McKenzie River in the Cascade Mountain wilderness only a 45 mile drive from our resort.
- Sahalie Falls is a mass of foaming white water plunging 100 feet (30 m) over a natural lava dam. This famous falls can be spotted in Disney’s movie Homeward Bound.
- The viewing platform is less then 100 feet (30 m) from the parking lot. Making for a quick and very rewarding stop.
- An easy family-friendly 2.6 mile (4.1843 km) loop trail starts at Sahalie Falls and connects to Koosah Falls. It is not wheelchair accessible due to stairs. The trail borders the McKenzie River through towering forest.
- Koosah Falls drops approximately 70 feet (21 m) into a deep pool.
