USA Sahalie Falls

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Sahalie is a Chinook word that translates to “heaven,” “high,” or “upper,” and all of these meanings resonate. Sahalie Falls is the uppermost of three falls the McKenzie River makes in the first few miles from its headwaters at Clear Lake, and it is the tallest and most thunderous. Here the river roars over the 70-foot drop in a white rush, spraying the perennially green basin with mist and storming quickly on to Koosah Falls just downstream.

Photography Tips

There is a universally accessible walkway to the viewpoints. Another short trial leads up to the crest of the falls and a view of the turbulent rapids downstream.
