This gem of a falls is just 13 miles from the heart of Bend, making for great and quick awesomeness. The last two miles are gravel, so heads up... and it has become a traffic jam of sight-seers. But if you head up on weekdays,...More

There are several ways to get to Tumalo Falls. We took the drive up to the parking lot but you can hike from further down the trail. It is a beautiful fall and only about 1/4 mile from the parking lot..

This was a very beautiful, simple waterfall but the fall colors and fresh air were amazing! Everyone on the path was very friendly!

My children and I very much enjoyed the hikes and scenery. The falls are beautiful, even a little place my son could get his feet wet.

Followed a trail that was leading us in the wrong direction of the falls. But finally got on track and ended up at the falls. Autumn colors beautiful.

We first stopped at Tumalo State Park, expecting to find the falls. There is a helpful sign at the park advising that the falls are some distance away, and providing information on how to get there. There is a shorter route than the one they...More

Great falls, access road is rough and parking is a joke. The Forest Service needs to pave the road and make a bigger parking lot, Charge more for access to give the public better access.

Beautiful falls.. the drive is bumpy and parking can be a challenge. Coming when we did was easier then in the summer to find parking.. love the roar of the water and the solitude of the area..

If you continue to drive once you enter the lot, continue to drive basically right up to them. There is a restoom near the bottom and it's just a few steps from there to the bottom viewing area.
