Fall Creek National Recreation Trail ist ein 12.2 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Lowell, Oregon. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, durch schönen Wald und es gibt einen Wasserfall und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert, spaziert und gejoggt werden. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Easy hike along Fall Creek takes you to several swimming holes and an old Native American hunting cave. Begin near the Dolly Varden Campground, and follow the trail along Fall Creek the entire trip. It's very easy, and would be perfect for taking kids. If you bring your swimsuit there are many pools along the trail that you could stop for a swim. Keep on going to see the Slick Creek Cave, a shallow cave that Native Americans used to camp at while on hunting trips. Just make sure you cross the highway and go left to catch the trail on the north side of the creek.

Passable with difficulty. No closed signs. Bridge down but useable. Trail washed out in many spots. We went about 1/2 mile before turning around. Will go back

Unfortunately this trail is still in pretty rough shape. The bridge is out at the beginning, close to the trailhead. Although it might be passable we decided not to risk it and caught the trail again where it crosses Big Fall Creek Rd. The upper portion was also very overgrown and portions of it had been washed out, but we went about a mile and a half before getting tired of getting scratches and settling on a swimming hole for the rest of the day. This is do-able if you are adventurous and have some clothing that protects your skin, but I am going to wait until more trail maintenance is completed before trying it again.

The February 2019 snowstorm damaged this trail heavily -- there are hundreds of downed trees and some significant landslides in the lower portion. The portion above Clark Creek is in better shape than the rest, but the bridge at the Slick Creek Cave is gone, which means that a scramble is required to cross the creek's little canyon if hiking upstream. You can still reach the cave from the Bedrock Campground, hiking downstream. This is a lovely trail, but it will take a lot of work to get it back to usable shape. I will post an update on progress in clearing and repairing, but for now it's best to avoid.

Road is blocked about a quarter mile from the trail head and has a lot of trees down as far as a mile out. I parked a mile from the trail head and hiked in. The trail itself is mostly downed branches and trees so I just walked along the road. The road is passable on foot so long as you don't mind climbing over some trees. It will be a while yet before you can even get to the trail head.

Section #1......easy trail with little elevation change. 1st section is about 4 miles. Scenic with nice views of the creek and plenty of places to relax. Looks like good swimming for the summer.

It was lush and beautiful. Watch out your step though. Some spots are dangerous for unexperienced hikers. We lost the trail after 4 miles due to fallen trees and other things blocking the way. It’s easy to lose the trail if you do t know where you are going.

I love this area, we used to go to a couple swimming wholes just up a ways from Bedrock. Unfortunately the last decade or so has not been kind to the Fall Creek wilderness. The trail was a little over grown when we went. It was absolutely beautiful walking and seeing the river from this perspective. Great little swimming wholes that could only be accessed from the trail. We had a hard time finding the trail towards the end because of the fire. I would say it is a moderate hike.

I hiked all the way to a campground then had ro turn around cause it was getting late, beautiful water views along the way, there is a part of this trail where the forest is burned down and it burnt the bridge to cross over, if your willing to cling some steep dirty ashy hills then it's completely doable.

Beautiful trail! Great for a solid workout too! Kept decent pace, slowed down a bit near the end. Made it to the burn and back on about 2.5 hours. About 5.5 miles in, there is a bit of overgrowth and a few trees down, but seem easy to climb over if you want to keep going. Will definitely do this again!

For those of you that didnt complete the whole trail. Starting right before Dolly Varden CG(which has a bridge you can jump off of into the deep water to cool off) the trail goes up creek(right side) until you reach the Clark Fire Burn Zone and come to NF-18 just after a bridge. Cross bridge to other side(Left) of river and continue on Clark creek trail(not well marked). At this point you can notice much less traffic and over grown grass. recommend stopping at slick. a short 50ft walk and you get to see the old native cave. trail forks at bedrock CG. continue on Trail or head to camp. To get back on trail, go north from camp site #1 trail heads north off of dirt road(not well marked) in CG that turns around at the gate. From here the trail heads up the mountain and at some point you stay right(up creek) at the jones trail junction, which continues up the mouintian. The trail was the most over grown in this section. I did some clearing while out there but some inlet portions are overgrown. after a while the trail joins back with fall creek and you will have more opportunities to stop for a dip. At the junction of Rd 1828 you will find a parking lot.( Trail head #4 on google) From here cross over road 18 and find continue on with the trail. Often you will find people here camping at the trail head. trail continues north and you cross over a trail bridge to be back on the right side of the creek for the duration of the trail. At some point you will reach a section that has tape strung across the old trail and the new trail heads up the mountain to avoid a dangerous slide area. it reconnects to the trail no problem. Trail ends at road 1833(trail head #5 on google). Overall amazing trail not difficult just needs a little more traffic to avoid being swallowed by the forest. P.S. Continue 3 miles up fall creek to see fall creek falls. Cross over bridge, past 2 slide zones, people parallel park on right side of road. Hope this Helps! Cheers.

We only went 2 miles out (4 total) because the dog was getting tired. It was beautiful and fun to hike! We loved all the swimming areas and little beaches right off the path.

I hiked this trail on Easter. Was planning the 12 miles, but when trail "ended" at bridge, I was unsure where to continue for the remainder. Gorgeous trail, muddy and some fun agility for my lab and I with the downed trees. Lots of great swimming holes for cooling off. Absolutely will go again!
