Toketee Falls, OR

[/caption] Toketee Falls was carved from ancient columnar basalt and drops almost 120 feet in two stages and is located in the Southern Oregon foothills of the Cascades. The hike is fairly easy but the views are awesome. You get the opportunity to witness the sunny and warm temperatures of Oregon’s sub Mediterranean climate. The waterfall is a short hike from highway 138 and there are several other waterfalls within a short hike or drive. Toketee Falls flows along the N. Umpqua River and the hike is a short half mile walk with stunning views of the eroded basalt rock and the swift moving river. This photo was taken from the viewing platform. I’ve seen several pictures from the edge of the river but you will need to duck under the railings and hike down a very steep and unmarked area in order to get to the edge of the river. It looked doable but I decided to save my energy for a 6 mile hike along the N. Umpqua river.
