Short easy hike to Lower Soda Falls. This state park has a lot to do with camping at Cascadia campground, swimming in the Santiam River and a short hike to the long thin Lower Soda Creek Falls. Look for a small trailhead sign and a bench as you drive into the main day-use parking area. This is the take-off point for a 3/4-mile trail that leads to the 150-foot Soda Creek waterfall. The dirt trail is moderately steep. Look for several varieties of ferns, wildflowers, big Douglas-fir, cedar, and maple trees.

An easy hike with some incline. That creek though! So beautiful. And the waterfall at the end was amazing. We spent some time right at the base of the falls. There's a couple big flat rocks perfect for sitting or laying and enjoying the nature around you. We went on Memorial Day and only saw a couple other people. Peaceful! And there was one spot that was pretty muddy. Our dog did great on this trail too.

Very, very wet! But all around great trail!
Both dogs were able to walk side by side in front of me, which was great.
Falls at the end were definitely worth the hike.

It was ok. Wish I had gone not in August and hopefully more run off would've had the fall bigger. It was cool going down to the river after the hike though!
