Reviews and Information

"This climb is fantastic! We stuck to the nature trail, which is steep in places but also has many lovely benches to sit and rest along the way. Every step is scenic, and if you're lucky enough to have a clear day hold onto your hat! with views of >1\2 a dozen mountains within range. 2 miles round trip, with driving option available seasonally, and within Bend city limits...highly recommended!"- Caren Gast

"During spring break we took a day off of boarding Mtn. Bachelor and were pleasantly surprised by the magnetic beauty of the falls. Easy access, ample parking and a nice but not to hard of a hike.
