Beautiful waterfall over basalt cliffs into a wave-tossed pool. Toketee Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls in all of Oregon, renowned far and wide for the graceful columnar basalt formation framing the two-stepped falls. The North Umpqua River has carved a sinuous gorge out of the lava flow, resulting in a waterfall of 113 feet in height - a 28 foot upper tier which plunges into a pool flanked by a deep alcove, followed by an 85 foot plunge into a large pool. At the trailhead, the wooden 12 foot diameter Toketee Pipeline is passed, which diverts much of the volume of the North Umpqua River to a powerhouse downstream. This artificial taming of the river allows the waterfall to flow in an extremely consistent manor all year long.

Nice trail. Fences discourage pool access, but many go through the fence.

Good short hike, theres usually a pretty easy way to get down to the falls to viewers right on the observation deck.

Nice, short hike with steps up and down for a good part of it. The waterfall is pretty. There is no apparent option as part of this trail to go down close to the falls, great viewpoint at the end though. Conditions were good today. A balmy 36* F, but the trail was clear. The road out to the trailhead is starting to frost up just a bit. Easy to find and navigate. Cool, kid-friendly hike.

Beautiful short hike. There are some stairs you have to climb but worth it!

This trail feels much more maintained than previous ones I’ve recently been on, namely Watson Falls. There are steps and side rails and fences. It feels a bit contained. There are a few places you can get a closer look at the river, but to see the falls, it’s actually only via a platform. It’s still a gorgeous hike with gorgeous views, but feels a bit too maintained.

I did this hike last year. by far my favorite so far. I might’ve climbed over the fence for a good shot. if you do, don’t bring kids or animals. it’s VERY dangerous. go slow.

This was one of my favorite trails I’ve done so far. It’s not too long and is appropriate for children. You get to see two waterfalls if you take the whole trail and you can get on top of one of them. The water is so incredibly blue and I can’t wait to do it again and again!

Was our first time and had a wonderful time. Weather was perfect and so was the view of the waterfall.

Great waterfall! The trail is a little steep for seniors. Young people, please STOP and give a hand to seniors walking up or at least, don’t dash down . Tourists, do not leave your trash.

Great hike along the water... seeing the water cut through the rocks is just as beautiful as the falls!

Absolutely beautiful. The trail was very easy. I ended up going to the very bottom - which is off the trail and a little sketchy. The hardest part of getting down for me was the first part, it's super dusty and there's not much to grip onto, after that there is a section of roots you climb down. This part has plenty of places to hold onto- just watch your footing. If you plan on going all the way down take your time and expect to get dusty. Totally worth the view at the bottom and the refreshing jump into the cold water.

I really wanted to go down to the base of the waterfall, but it seemed really sketchy. For one you have to go off trail. Secondly I was the only one there and if I stepped wrong I could’ve had a potentially fatal death or serious injury. The view from the platform was spectacular but it left me wanting more.

Easy hike to the falls outlook. There is a rope to go down to the bottom of the falls and it’s a MUST. A little scary but absolutely worth it.
