Easy hike to two waterfalls in the Santiam Foothills. At Shellburg Falls you can walk behind the waterfall. The Shellburg Falls Recreation Area is located near Lyons, Oregon in the Santiam State Forest and is managed by the Oregon Department of Forestry. It offers a peaceful, secluded recreational experience. Whether you enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, equestrian riding, or simply exploring nature, you'll find many things to do and see. It is an easy trail that winds its way through giant Douglas-fir and Hemlock trees and under the Shellburg Falls. There is also a small campground nearby, facilities include picnic tables, fire rings with barbecue grills and restroom facilities. Currently there are four campsites available which are first come first serve. For visitors wanting to escape the crowds and enjoy a quiet camping trip this is an excellent location.

Easy hike. Not 6 miles. Stassel falls is just off to the side before you turn up a hill. It looks kind of like trail and it is. There's service so you can use this app to help you locate it if needed. You can do the whole loop but it's not necessary. Kid and dog friendly. Muddy to stassel!!
