This is just off I84 and is easy to access. The best time to go and take photographs is during the spring runoff.

This is one of my favorite hikes. I've done it quite a few times as a kid and it is as amazing then as it now.

Magnificent waterfalls. High climb with lots of switchbacks, unless you hang at the lodge.

Beautiful site, accessible year-round. The crowds are pretty dense during weekends and holidays, so beware. You lose the crowd pretty quickly, though, once you travel up past the falls.

This is a picturesque waterfall that just happens to be right off the interstate. Get out, stretch your legs for an hour while you check out this area. You won't regret it! If you're in this area in the fall, then you're in for an even better treat, as the foliage is brilliant. You'll be updating your desktop background after a trip here.

loved driving by this as a kid growing up visiting oregon every year and as an adult this place is very special to me, did not complete the hike due to that, some hikes you need to do alone or with someone you wont have to say goodbye too. still a wonderful place so full of life
