Drift Creek Trail is in the Siuslaw National Forest. It extends from Tillamook to Coos Bay along the Oregon Coast. It includes many micro-climates and amazing topography, including Drift Creek Falls.
Drift Creek Falls plummets 75 feet into the waters of the Drift Creek canyon below. You have a spectacular view because you cross over it on a 240-foot long cable suspension bridge that gently swings as you walk. Massive cables strung 100 feet above the base of the canyon are very strong, but it’s a thrill nonetheless.
This trail also offers a nice view of Coast Range forest as you descend towards the base of the falls. A few smaller falls spill into the canyon as you travel downwards. When you reach the marshy area at the bottom, you can even wade in if you wish. The trail is only moderately challenging because you have to hike back up on your return.
