Yes the main falls are a short walk from the parking lot – but keep going! The trail is wide and well traveled with a beautiful tree canopy. And if you take the trail along the river you will see many other waterfalls. Spectacular scenery...More

Nice, easy drive from Bend. Worth the trip. A bit crowded in the summer though. Parking is a nightmare with not enough parking spaces and a narrow parking lot. The bathrooms are a bit scary.

While you do get your car dusty on the gravel road, I feel it was definitely worth the trip. It’s nice you don’t have to hike for miles to see the falls. Parking is very limited!

No parking, too crowded, road not paved to where "parking" is so you'll have to wash all the dust off your car when you get home. Understand there is a proposal to move the entrance so this situation may change. Photos I have seen of...More

We went fairly early in the morning and it wasn't too hot or crowded. We parked at the first lot about a half mile away and enjoyed the easy walk through the high desert. Being able to see the waterfall from different views was a...More

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.
