Only in Oregon
Salt Creek Falls
Salt Creek Falls drops almost 300 feet into a gaping canyon near Willamette Pass close to Highway 58. Well maintained trails from the day use area quickly take visitors to several overlooks. A steep trail descends to the waterfall's base, providing a completely different view of Oregon's second highest waterfall.
The Diamond Creek Falls Loop Trail starts at the day use area and follows the creek upstream to view the 100-foot Diamond Creek Falls. It's well worth the stop to stretch your legs for awhile and let the beauty of this natural spot release the tension from highway driving. It's one more place that I can say you'll find "Only in Oregon."
