Oregon Waterfalls - Family Friendly Sites



World's Friendliest Butterfly - California Tortoiseshell
(some guys attract flies - I attract the buttery kind)

Got input from a friend that it would be good to have listings for
waterfall sites that parents with small kids would be able to enjoy the
beauty of nature. These sites would have easy-to-traverse trails and limited
risk of encountering poisonous plants - or steep terrain that could cause falls.

The first grouping is the greatest grouping - Silver Falls State Park east of Salem

Note: Day Use Fee applies - Northwest Forest Pass will not work for a state park.
