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.

great for newbs and experts alike. a little muddy but hey its oregon and its January. couldn't ask for anything more.

I absolutely loved hiking this trail, ended up hiking almost 13 miles to see the entire thing! So many beautiful waterfalls and you get to walk behind 4 of them which was incredible!! I highly recommend!!!

I wanted to be impressed but honestly it’s not worth the drive. I followed Matt’s directions (listed below my review) not the all trail directions and found the trailhead fairly easily. The logging road does split off a couple times, however ~ just stay to the right and you will find it. The trail was nicely maintained and there were only a few hikers out. The Siletz River has some pretty cascading falls as you drive along the logging road. The trees are beautiful but as I’m an avid hiker and Oregon adventurer, I think there are hundreds of better options for a day trip.

Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Quite the calf burner, but made for an incredible first time hike. The views are worth the grind up to the top. Couldn't imagine walking this during snowfall or heavy rain due to downed trees in parts and narrower paths. All in all a nice gem of a hike.

Went on a Cold Sunday morning hike. We took the Kopetski trail loop and came around the back side of jawbone flats. No worries you end up on the same trail you start on. We started our hike at 11 AM and got done at 2:15 PM. We only saw two other groups of hikers until we started to head back, then it was a bit more crowded, but no problem as it’s not nearly as bad as the summer time. Dress warm/layers as you are hiking in a canyon that gets very little sunlight and it’s cold until you warm up from hiking. We stopped for a small lunch at jawbone flats and had to layer back up before we got going again. Love this place. BRING CASH OR CHECK for parking. And if you can spare it, the town takes donations too, and once you see how pristine they help keep the town and trails you’ll want to donate. Great hike for all ages and skills but the Kopetski Loop is a little more rugged and step, would not recommend for little ones or people with old knees. Enjoy.

great family hike. can be muddy at times and slippery in some spots. still a great and beautiful hike.

As someone who isn’t from here, I was bummed that nobody mentioned the lake gets drained in the winter so it’s mostly dirt there currently, but it was a great hike nonetheless and the view of Mt Jefferson is incredible. No snow, and saw families with small children and kids on the way out and back. Took my 12 year old dog on this and she got tired from the incline on the way up but was fine after we hung out at the top for about 10 minutes and we were able to get back to our car in half the time it took to get up the mountain. Definitely would do again when it’s warmer out and the lake is full

One of the most beautiful hikes in Oregon. Jawbone Flats is an incredible site to see.

Not a fan of the road getting there, but the falls are amazing and totally worth it all.

Beautiful forestry and an amazing waterfall.

Nice and easy walk. Nice and clean trail with a few falls. It's cool to be able to go behind the last one and just listen.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

pretty falls

This hike is a gorgeous forest loop that offers varying scenery. It’s overshadowed by the Trail of Ten Falls, which is great because there’s a lot less people on it. It is horse accessible, and there’s plenty of horse poop to prove it, but it wasn’t a big deal for us. The uphill portions of this hike are painful, but then it’s downhill the whole way back. Now, if you’re a lover of mud like I am, enjoy the crap out of this. If you’re delicate and don’t like to get dirty, find something else to do besides this trail. It’s also very well marked, so getting lost would be difficult. We didn’t see any critters on the trail, but a sign at the trailhead said that bears and cougars have been spotted there before. Based on the density of the forest, I’m pretty sure they were there watching us amble through. Creek crossings were fine because of lovely bridges, and there’s plenty of water on the trail for dogs.

Went and hiked out to the waterfall with my wife on 4 Jan. Trail was muddy is some spots, but nothing severe. The suspension bridge was fun to cross and I enjoyed the lower view of the fall, which is going strong this time of year.

The hike was short and easy, even with the optional North Loop trail. Boots recommended.

Beautiful beautiful hike!

Beautiful easy hike. The elevation is gradually and comes on at a steady pace. Took my wife and kids. Ages 5 and 6. My one year old went into my Phil and teds carrier and onto my back. Highly recommended.

Hiking this trail in the winter is the way to go if you want to skip the crowds. It was the perfect little hike for a winter day.

Easy to find, clear trail, beautiful view. Hiked in winter and snow coverage was not foreboding.

Easy hike that had two beautiful waterfalls on it! The first one pours over a cave like structure. You can walk under the first waterfall but the cave does not that much clearance and tends to be muddy but it’s a fun little cave to go into. The second falls are much larger and you can see that one from a distance on a high ledge where the trail ends. Beautiful. You can climb down off of that ledge to get to the foot of the water but it gets pretty sketchy in winter. Beautiful hike.

The waterfall is beautiful. I have gone there many times and every time it continues to blow my mind. The falls and hike change with the seasons. Beautiful beautiful.

What a glorious hike. Exactly what I was looking for.

When driving down the forest road keep going past the nature conservatory trail, and you will find the Hart’s cove parking lot and trail head (this road is closed Jan 1 until July).
Easyish hike in. Beautiful old growth forest. Barking seals. You do have to pass a little creek and will probably get your feet wet. The top is exquisite. The hike back is more difficult.
What a wonderful trail and experience. I will go back this summer when it’s back open.

Really enjoyable even in the cold. The views of the lake were really something.
