WATSON FALLS – updated
Southern Oregon waterfalls with kids!
This has been our favorite Waterfall adventure hike to date! We have been on two “Waterfall Adventures.” Our first time, we went just ourselves to Mill Creek Falls, Pearsoney Falls, Whitehorse Falls, Clearwater Falls, and finally Watson Falls :)
Our second time, we went with 5 other families :) that included over 20 kids! Watson Falls was once again, a crowd favorite!
Watson Falls can be found along Fish Creek Road #37, just over 2 miles east of Toketee Falls and Lake, itself about 43 miles east of Glide or 16 miles west of Diamond Lake. The parking area is about 500 feet south of Highway 138 on the right side. The trail crosses Road 37 and climbs easily but steadily up to the base of the falls in about 1/3 mile… or in other words, GOOGLE MAP IT :)
(Here is a little throwback to our very first trip to Watson Falls!)
We loved the hike to Watson falls, very doable with kids! You can hike right up to the bottom of the waterfall too.
It is obviously extremely muddy and wet from the spray, but incredible! Watson Falls is the 3rd tallest Waterfall in Oregon, and arguably the best waterfall in the North Umpqua River basin :)
and a few more throwbacks from our first visit :)
