Tumalo Falls, located just outside of Bend in the Deschutes National Forest, was by far one of the most scenic hikes I’ve ever been on. It’s a real easy quarter mile hike up to the viewpoint and then a four mile hike further up towards Happy Valley.
We decided to hike up to the viewpoint and then to just hike along the creek as the views of the forest surrounding it were too good to stop looking at.
I’d definitely recommend this hike to anybody, even those who don’t really hike, as it was fairly easy and quite scenic. For more experienced hikers, there’s also Black Butte or Smith Rock–both also have incredible views.
