Explore '17 Solar Eclipse Oregon - view hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible from the contiguous United States! It will be the first solar eclipse to traverse coast to coast in nearly a century and the first to occur solely in the United States since the country was founded! To celebrate this epic event, The AllTrails Team has created a list of Oregon’s top-notch eclipse-viewing spots! What better place to watch the eclipse than from the Oregon Coast? Enjoy the lush canopies of fir and cedar that tower above and the miles of plunging, rocky cliffs that stretch alongside the Pacific. With a view framed by an ocean horizon, Oregonians can revel in having one of the best seats in the house, in one of the first places in the U.S to see the eclipse. The eclipse will first touch Oregon at approximately 10:15am. The sun will be totally obscured by the moon for a 1-2 minute period before exiting the state at about 10:27 am. From the Coast, the moon’s shadow will race east toward Salem. Worried about a foggy forecast covering your seaside view? Have no fear! Oregon is teeming with strikingly beautiful inland sites within the 'path of totality' that will surely fulfill your nature and eclipse needs. Check out those inland gems on our list! The Willamette Valley and Deschutes River Valley seem to be the safest bets for clear skies on the day of the eclipse. Be sure to consider traffic, camping, and sleeping arrangements if you will be making an overnight trip as an estimated 7 million people will be migrating to this path.

Beautiful nature walk

This was a bucket list trail for me to hike and it was amazing! The waterfalls were breathtaking as was the trail and trees. It is 8.7 miles-pretty easy trail to hike.

This is the best place to go cliff jumping in Central Oregon. do not even attempt to go on a weekend though. It gets way too crowded. But if you have time on a hot week day, it's the best place to be! very easy hike. I did it in flip flops.

One of the most beautiful hikes I have done in Oregon. It was a bit of a challenge but worth it at the end.

Lots to explore on this hike. This is one of my favorites.

I'm so glad the potholes have been fixed!

One of my favorites! Very packed on weekends because it's so popular. Love cooling off in the water next to the waterfall at Jawbone or at the natural rock water slide on hot summer days.

Such a beautiful hike! An absolute must! A great hike all year long!

June 19- wildflowers are in full bloom and an endless stream of butterflies flutter by along the river, no mosquitos or ticks atm. The large population of bats skimming the surface of the water at night makes for quite a spectacle. Ran into the rarely seen Rubber Boa near Wizard Falls fish hatchery on a night hike

this is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world and I'm privileged to say I was married here

Start early. There are a ton of people on this trail. Also it is more like a road than a trail. It was something fun to check out, but I doubt I will do this hike again.

Nice hike. Long, but nice.

beautiful. I will go back again to see it after a good rain so I can see the water flow.

Short stroll with great views of the layered hills.

trail is closed and the road is gated off until July 15th

One of my favorite places. A must see and explore!

We hiked into this beautiful piece of the world at the beginning of January. The falls is breathtaking and completely worth the journey in- make sure to follow the advice of other reviewers for directions!

Absolutely incredible! I got here at around 08:00 on a Monday morning and started at north falls instead of south. That way I didn’t hit much traffic until about 10:45!

great easy hike for my 6 and 4 year old. falls are beautiful and trail is in decent shape. A little too crowded for a fifth star.

Beautiful trail! Always a breath of fresh air.

This hike is so popular, so if you want a parking spot, get there early. It’s short and sweet, well maintained, and has a suspension bridge and waterfall. This was my third time on this hike, and I’m not tired of it yet.

Amazing hike! Well marked. You definitely should wear hiking boots. The falls are amazing!

It was absolutely beautiful! Finding a trail head or any markings was difficult. I didn't see any place you were really intended to start but you could see where people had been through. I would definitely do this hike again. Not difficult but parking and walking through the gravel added some length to the hike. Easier to get all the way down and not have to walk down with a larger, heavy vehicle.

From the town of Scotts Mills, follow Crooked Finger Road for 10 3/4 miles (1.25 miles past the end of the pavement) and turn right on an unmarked road. Follow this road downhill for 2.25 miles to the end of the road at a gate and park. The road down is rough and steep in places and is not well suited to low clearance vehicles. If you can't make it to the gate, there are several places to park on the side. From the gate, walk 100 feet back along the road to the trail which leads steeply downhill to the creek and falls in about 1/2 mile. Thanks to the ropes along the trail for making the descents and accents a little easier! The falls are incredible and the canyon, amazing!

great moderate intensity 9.2 mile hike with 10 awesome waterfalls , many amazing trees , mangroves, and an abundance of wildlife .
bring a snack, plenty of water , and maybe some trekking poles , they definitely were a huge assistance in the last 3rd of our hike. We went counter clockwise (canyon to rim) and the rim trail is a bit of elevation change .

Great trail, can get crowded. Best in the early spring. Not pup friendly (I’ve seen dogs on here but would never take mine).
