Clearwater Falls Oregon

Clearwater Falls in Umpqua National Forest Oregon 

Clearwater Falls can be found just off Highway 138, near mile marker 69. Clearwater Falls is easily accessed from a nearby parking lot. The path from the parking lot is well developed and runs parallel to the Clearwater River. It's an easy and beautiful walk.

The waterfall itself is just about 30 feet in height, which is relatively modest. But don't let the size of the falls dissuade you from visiting. It's a fascinating little spring-fed waterfall, meaning that it flows year-round. For that reason, hikers who decide to explore will find that the river is placid above and below the falls area.

The Umpqua River drainage, especially, has enough waterfalls to make a tour route out of it, with 18 named waterfalls, plus another half dozen on the drainage to the north, the Row River. Few beautiful water falls are
·         Toketee Falls
·         Watson Falls
·         Clearwater Falls
·         Lemolo Falls
·         Mill Creek Falls
·         Barr Creek Falls
