USA McKenzie River Trail
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Passing Clear Lake, the McKenzie River Trail trail descends sharply to the dramatic Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls and then around Carmen Reservoir where the river disappears underground for much of the year. About 2 miles further, the river emerges into the stunningly beautiful and crystalline Blue Pool at Tamolich Falls. The brilliant blue water almost doesn’t look real. There are numerous other cascades along this gorgeous riverside hike.
