Warm Springs Falls is a remarkably consistent 60 foot waterfall where its namesake creek thunders over a columnar basalt formation into a mossy amphitheater below. I am unaware of the stature of the springs which feed the creek, but I've never seen a picture of the falls (nor visited) where the volume was notably diminished. Upon my most recent visit the Forest Service had undertaken a reconstruction effort to install a viewing deck as well as upgrade the trail to allow wheelchair access (construction was said to be completed in August of 2007). The Warm Springs Falls Trail has the added bonus of being lined with lots of wild Rhododendron, usually blooming in June and early July.
- Warm Springs Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
Warm Springs Falls is located near Lemolo and Diamond Lakes in the Umpqua National Forest. Depart Highway 138 eleven miles east of Toketee at FR 2610, marked for Lemolo Lake. Follow Road 2610 for 5.2 miles, crossing the Lemolo Dam along the way, and turn left on Road 600. Drive for 3 miles to Road 680 and turn left. Proceed down this route for 1.7 miles to the Warm Springs Falls Trail #1499. With the redevelopment in 2007, I expect the falls to be signed. The trail leads to the viewpoint in 1/3 mile.
