Pegleg Falls is a 21 foot tall, 50-60 foot wide rolling block-type waterfall along the Hot Springs Fork of the Collowash River deep in the Mount Hood National Forest. A fish ladder has been carved into the bedrock to the river-left of the falls, which allows a substantial portion of the river to bypass the waterfall. The de-watering isn't noticeable early in the year but during the summer months the falls become substantially reduced in stature as a result of the diversion.
- Pegleg Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
From the town of Estacada follow SR 224 for 27 miles and turn right onto FSR 46 (Clackamas River Road). In another 3 1/2 miles turn right onto FSR 63 (Collowash Road) then in another 3 1/2 miles turn right again onto FSR 70 (Bagby Springs Road) and drive another 5 1/3 miles to the Pegleg Falls day use area. The falls are found just upstream with a trail leading shortly down to the river.
