Short 0.4 mile hike through lush forest. We went in November which was great, but my oh my, lotsa water in May after the wet wet winter

There's a moderately difficult 20 minute, 400 vertical foot hike to the top. It doesn't lead to behind or underneath the Falls, but you get pretty darn close and very wet.

Beautiful falls, nice easy hike. There are numerous falls on the North Umpqua River to combine into a full day of easy hikes and great scenery. Toketee Falls, Watson Falls, Clearwater Falls to name a few. The drive up the river from Roseburg is worth...More

Worth the walk to see these breathtaking falls. Just have to be careful not to slip on the damp moss if you are old and crippled up like me, lololol.

One of many nice, scenic waterfalls along the North Umpqua River Highway. this one is just off the highway at milepost 61. Signs lead you to the parking area a short distance off Highway 138. Spring time is the best time to visit, but a...More

Young and old alike have enjoyed this natural wonder in our beautiful Umpqua National Forest. Great in all four seasons.

By all means you need to go to this falls. Very strenuous hike to the top, but well worth it. The view is awesome. Douglas county in Oregon has the best waterfalls in the country.

Easy hike to the falls and beautiful. Plenty of photo ops on the way to the falls. Interesting moss and lichens.

Can anyone tell me what the hiking conditions are like right now? We are looking to head down from Bend to explore on 2/27/16 and want to make sure we come with the right gear. Is there snow on the ground? Thank you!

We have had only one light powdering of snow this year. I'd advise footwear that can handle some mud.

hello,,,can someone please give directions to Watson Falls as the website is for a hotel/casino rather than the Falls. Would be good to include a map on the listing, Staying with family in Sutherlin and would love to go there if we can find it. Also looking for a cosy restaurant in a nice setting rather than looking into a carpark - any suggestions. Its now December - so wintertime.
