Fall Creek Falls
   Douglas County, Oregon

[ Physical Makeup ]  [ Pictures ]  [ Maps ]  [ Update History ]

Fall Creek Falls is one of the more accessible waterfalls in the North Umpqua corridor. Dropping about 120 feet over 4 tiers, the falls spray into a small amphitheater before cascading down through a very scenic gorge to the Umpqua. The falls consist of four tiers, of approximately 10, 40, 20 and 50 feet - with the uppermost tier only being visible from the top of the falls. The falls were apparently measured by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Service at 197 feet tall, however that appears to be a significant overestimate.
