Tumalo Falls and Upper Tumalo Falls


Double Falls (aka Middle Tumalo) and an unnamed waterfall

Tumalo Falls are west of Bend.
Directions:

  1. From Highway 20/97 take exit 137 onto Revere Ave and head west
  2. Turn onto Wall St. and head south
  3. At Franklin Ave. turn right (signed for Mount Bachelor Ski Area)
  4. In a short distance signs will change the name to Riverside Blvd
  5. In a half mile turn right onto Tumalo Ave
  6. One block later name changes again - this time to Galveston Ave
  7. About one mile later name changes again - this time to Skyliners Road
In a little over 13 miles from the Franklin intersection pavement ends.
If the gate is open follow signs to Tumalo Falls (road 1403 from road 1401).
Waterfall is about 2.2 miles from the gate. There is a vault toilet.
Day use fee applies (Northwest Forest Pass available at sporting goods stores).
Tumalo Falls can be seen right at the rest area. A trail leads up to an
overlook (the only steep part of the entire trail) in a quarter mile.
Less than a mile up that trail is Double Falls - or Middle Tumalo Falls.
A very short distance farther up that path is an unnamed fall. I could see
four tiers. Upper Tumalo Falls is less than a mile further up.

Bridge Creek Falls is in the same area.
