Beautiful spot for a sunrise. I recommend traveling down river and exploring the canyon.

Wow. A must see, pretty amazing views and an old power house worth looking into. Pretty easy yet short trail

the white River Falls is one of the locals favorite. the falls are beautiful and has a lot of history involved with it. I highly recommend not to hike around the falls itself cause the rocks are wet, mossy and slippery and many have been hurt, needing rescued. Taking the main trail down to the power house is a little steep but we'll worth the descent. explore the old generators and the achievements of the 1940's. the trail continues to the mouth of the White River where it joins The Deschutes. take more water than you think necessary for it gets very hot in the canyon. moderate

Only went down far enough to see the waterfall. It was a hot day and the trail is rocky and dusty. If you are close by check it out but wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. The elevation at the beginning is pretty steep.

Great and easy short hike in the middle of the Oregonian desert. 2 hours drive from Portland. Definitely worth it.

Multiple water falls to see. Trail gets difficult at the end and just stops, but over all, beautiful location to walk.

great falls, very beautiful. Very cool old building, neat to see. We had tons of bug spray on & still eaten alive, & saw a rattle snake.

Should have read the previous review... the mosquitos were horrendous!! The Falls are gorgeous, but we didn't stay too long because the ground was burning the pads of my dogs feet, even in the dirt areas. Will be back in the fall!
