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.

Really nice hike. It is rated "more difficult" due to the over 200 steps on the path (each way), but it isn't very hard at all if the steps don't bother you. The steps are well maintained and there are easy places to stop and rest along the way. The waterfall is absolutely gorgeous, and the entire trail is picturesque.

Great view from the base of the waterfall. It is a shame they fenced it, but you can easily hop it

So amazing! I was a little bit afraid to go down to the waterfalls but I just take my time and it was ok (went down with 2 Chihuahuas, one at a time). hope that I can return there one day!

I highly recommend going at an odd hour so you don't show up when the mass crowds are their. At the end of the trail (overlook) you can go off the trail and scale down to the water. Its not very easy but if you are in shape its doable.

Beautiful falls, easy path, does have some stairs, be prepared if you hate stairs like my wife does, Most Mosquitoes I have encountered that I can ever think of off the top of my head, (at least in July) The kids & I did climb down to the bottom of the falls (This in NOT a hike) do not attempt if you to not like heights, you WILL be using your hands
