Salt Creek Falls is a cascade and plunge waterfall on Salt Creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork Willamette River, that plunges into a gaping canyon near Willamette Pass in the Willamette National Forest, near Oakridge, Oregon. The waterfall is notable for its main drop of 286 feet (87 m) which makes it the third highest plunge waterfall in Oregon after Multnomah Falls and Watson Falls the second highest, which was re-measured in 2009 and found to be 293 feet rather than an earlier measurement of 272 feet passing Salt Creek Falls. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is 20 metres (66 ft) deep.

  • 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.
  • This is the second highest falls in Oregon and can be easily visited while driving to crater lake from Portland. Nice views at a very short hike.
