Watson Falls Trail #1496
Watson Falls is the highest falls in Southwest Oregon with a stunning 272-foot drop over a basalt lava flow. The trail climbs through a lush, green understory of salal, Oregon grape, vine maple, and ferns with an overstory of Douglas-fir and hemlock trees. A wooden bridge crosses Watson Creek just below the falls, offering an excellent view of this spectacular falls. The trail loops back to Road 24 and also to the base of the falls. The cool spray is welcome on hot summer days!
