Benham Falls in Sunriver is a very easy 5 mile roundtrip walk on the bike path until you reach the bridge and then a wide path until you reach the falls. Very easy for young and old. Be sure to bring a camera! There is...More

With sturdy walking shoes, this is a trail is an easy stroll that gets you up close (while on shore!) to some ferocious, fast moving river rapids.

We took our kids (ages 12 to 17) by bike from the village. It was a pleasant ride and the views were great. Worth doing. May want bug spray. we ended up with quite a few mosquito bites.

The mosquitos were out of control! Do not go without bug spray. We did the short trail from the east parking area. Probably have about 30 bites now. The trail itself is nice and easy. 1 mile round trip.

We have been riding to Benham Falls ever since the '80s. The new trail made by Sunriver has made it so much easier. Don't miss this great ride.

nice to see. more of a stroll than a hike. Cooler temperatures here in the summer - a reprieve from the summer heat.

We do this every time we come to Sun River. It’s a great afternoon of easy riding (as long as you have a comfortable bike!) to some gorgeous falls. Hint: go early during peak seasons.

Although we tried to walk the trail last week, there was a train stalled at the crossing, so we were unable to complete our plan. However, we did take trails from the Lava Lands Center up Lava Butte and had beautiful views... More

I would not recommend trying to visit the falls in the winter. The roads are not plowed for access to the falls. Years ago I tried and almost got stuck in the snow.
