Beautiful hike along an old wagon road on the Santiam River includes a giant rock, a cave, a waterfall, and a campground. The Santiam Wagon Road is a historic cattle road which goes from Sisters, Oregon to Albany, Oregon. This hike to House Rock is probably the most intact piece of the original wagon road, this segment will provide you with a true sense of early travel. The road parallels the South Santiam River and winds through lush old growth forests and crosses several tributaries along the way.

Nice hike that the whole family went on. It was really neat going into the "cave" there was a lot water running through it but I had my water proof hiking boots on. Would recommend this hike.

Nice hike! There is a camp ground you can park at that is only .5mi away from the falls or you can take this lovely trail through the forest. Either way- House Rock Falls is pretty cool! It's super slippery getting to the base though so be careful!
