Sahalie Falls / Sahale Falls is a lesser known waterfall on the SE side of Mt. Hood that plunges over 60 feet on the East Fork of the Hood River.  The waterfall is often hiked to as part of a loop hike in conjunction with the nearby Umbrella Falls.  Both waterfalls are easy to access during the summer from the Mt. Hood Meadows parking lots and on days in which the gates are open you can even drive to Sahale Falls.

The falls veil 60 feet down the back of a verdant grotto, with additional drops of 4 feet and 10 feet immediately downstream. Though the falls are located at a high elevation on the slopes of Mount Hood, which guarantees a consistent amount of water in the river all year. The falls are viewed from a picturesque arch bridge dating back to the construction of the original Mount Hood Scenic Byway in the 1930s.
