Coquille River Falls Trail #1257

Coquille Falls

The relatively short Coquille River Falls trail switches back and forth through an amazing stand of old-growth Douglas-fir, hemlock, and Port-Orford cedar trees, and ends at Coquille River Falls. The trail is within driving distance from the small town of Powers, Oregon, and several campgrounds in and around the town.

When arriving at the falls, care should be taken, since the trail is steep and almost always wet. Footing is very insecure when descending to the river.
