Susan Creek Falls
   Douglas County, Oregon

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

Susan Creek Falls is a pretty, but fairly lackluster 35 foot veil along the waterfall-studded Umpqua River corridor. The falls are accessed via a very easy, well graded trail developed and maintained by the Oregon BLM. Picnic tables are provided below the falls for a nice afternoon destination for a family outing. For serious waterfall hunters, I would definitely suggest dropping this one down the priority list a few notches in lieu of the much better waterfalls further into the mountains.

HISTORY AND NAMING INFORMATION

  • Susan Creek Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.

LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS

easy access

Susan Creek Falls is located 12 miles east of Glide along the North Umpqua Highway (SR 138). The parking area is signed, and the trail is graded evenly enough that it should be accessible to the disabled with the stamina to make it the 3/4 mile to the falls.
