Like neighboring Drowned Out Creek, Squaw Creek also plunges over a modest waterfall, as it works it's way to the Coquille River. This waterfall occurs immediately beneath the bridge over Squaw Creek, along FR 3348. The falls plunge down a 30 foot fall, followed by a 10 foot fall. Both upstream and down, there are some cool bedrock slides. While investigating this waterfall, I noticed what looked like a horizon line a short distance downstream of this waterfall. Supporting this theory is the fact that while hiking down the Coquille River Falls trail, I heard what sounded like a rather large waterfall on Squaw Creek. Should any other waterfalls be present on Squaw Creek, they surely won't be as accessible as this fall.
- Upper Squaw Creek Falls is the name of this waterfall.
Located in the Siskiyou National Forest. From the city of Coos Bay, follow Highway 101 south to Highway 42. Follow Highway 42 for about 21 miles, and turn right onto the Rogue-Coquille Scenic Byway, signed for the town of Powers. Follow this road, which becomes FR 33, for about 38 miles, to FR 3348, signed for Glendale. Follow FR 3348 for 1 1/2 miles to the Squaw Creek bridge, just prior to the Coquille River Falls trailhead. Park at either the bridge, or the trailhead, just up the road, and find a faint boot path, on the west side of the creek, which leads steeply down to the streambed below the falls, located immediately underneath the bridge.
