Lower / Middle / Upper Fall Creek Falls

Fall Creek Falls' are 26 miles west of Bend. There are numerous water features on the trail.


  1. From Interstate 5 take exit 188A and head east on Hwy 58
  2. Past milepost 72 and just before milepost 73 turn left onto Crescent Cutoff Road
  3. In 3 miles turn left onto Cascade Lakes Highway (aka County Road #46)
  4. In another 43 miles turn left into Green Lakes Trailhead (between MP26 and MP27)
  5. Keep to the right and drive around to the parking area (Northwest Forest Pass required)
  6. Find Fall Creek Trail #17 near parking area
  7. Short distance up the trail cross a log bridge and bear right past the bridge
  8. Trail with little rise leads to the lower falls in about mile, the middle falls in
    another mile and the upper mile past that one
Upper falls is my favorite because you can get right next to it and put your hands in the froth.
Also access Cascade Lakes Highway from Bend.
