This loop trail passes by two waterfalls on the McKenzie River. Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls are located on the old "Clear Lake Cutoff" section of Highway 126. These falls mark the terminus of two thick flows of basaltic andesite lava that dammed Clear Lake and moved into the McKenzie River 3,000 years ago. The results are two breathtaking waterfalls with foaming white water cascades in between. The loop trail connects the two waterfalls and the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail, and offers up close views of the wild McKenzie River. Sahalie Falls viewpoint is fully accessible.

One of my favorite trails! Stunning falls, the air smells so sweet here, and we loved just sitting by quieter spots on the river. Really gorgeous the whole way!

Super easy and very easy to figure out what is what and where to go. Just wish they had given a better marking once you reached the Reservoir to tell you that the trail for sure continues and loops back around. But other than that it was awesome. I am glad we had this app with the map to tell us to keep going.
