Event description

Description

Hike Rating: Easy; 2.6 miles

Guides: John Magee (831-521-4305) and Cindy Murray

This waterfall trail hike will take us past two surging waterfalls (100 feet and 70 feet tall), crystalline turquoise waters, old-growth firs, cedars and hemlocks, and thick pillows of spongy moss covering exposed chunks of this young lava flow.

Participants should wear sturdy, closed-toed hiking shoes. Bring at least one quart of water, and pack a lunch, as we will have lunch on the trail. Bring trekking poles if you use them.

Directions: Driving time to the trail head is approximately 2 hours one-way from Bend and Redmond. Meet at the Sahalie Falls parking lot at 11:00 a.m. From Bend, take Highway 20 west to Sisters; from Redmond, take Highway 126 west to Sisters. From Sisters, continue on Highway 20/126 and turn left to stay on Highway 20 at the junction of Highways 20 and 22, following the signs toward Eugene. In a short distance turn left onto highway 126 toward Eugene. The Sahalie Falls parking lot will be on your right. If you would like to carpool, please call John Magee at (831) 521-4305.

Group size is limited to 8 people, and dogs are not allowed on this hike. If you sign up and later need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so that people on the wait list can be invited to join this hike. Thank you!
