Easy hike to two waterfalls in the Santiam Foothills. At Shellburg Falls you can walk behind the waterfall.

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.

We did the Shellburg Falls hike and didn't have time to find Stassel Falls. It's a lot quicker if you choose not to do the loop.

Great hike. The trail was clear and in great shape. The loop is about 7.4 miles round trip.

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!!
