Take a break from sight seeing in Tillamook and along the ocean and walk back to the falls. It's a nice walk and lovely to view!

The falls are so cool! With only about a 1/4 mile hike in you can see and hear the falls as they crash down onto the rocks and fallen timber. My family and I have had the privelidge to visit the falls in 3 seasons so far (Summer, Fall and Winter). While a bright sunny sky tends to be a... More

Yes, the road is a little rough for a short section and narrow most of the drive, so drive slowly, but the reward is a unique 1/4 mile walk through old growth forest that leads to a trail closed sign with a view of the falls. The trail is closed due to downfall but adds to this unique opportunity! Ten... More

The road leading up to the trail to the falls is very rough, lots of sunken in holes so drive slow and be watchful of these obstacles. It's not much of a hike to see the falls. Once you get a view of how tall the falls are, stop there. If you go down the steps you'll be disappointed because... More

Bumpy road led us to a 1/4 mile trail to walk along the creek and view the falls. It was nice to get out of the car on this quick stop.

Be incredibly careful on the road in. Lots of potholes but worth the drive. It's a nice short hike in. Right now a lot is blocked off from fallen trees but the falls are beautiful even from far away.

Munson Creek Falls are beautiful and are accessible on a short trail from the parking lot. The road to the parking lot is only partially paved but is passable year round.

The walk to the viewpoint is very short...this would be an ok outing with young kids, and on a hot afternoon, the shady trail was surprisingly cool. There are a couple of picnic tables at the parking lot where you could have a snack or meal, too. However, if you're looking for a longer walk, this would not be a... More
