Salt Creek Falls Observation Site is located approximately 23 miles southeast of Oakridge at an elevation of 4,000 feet. This site has 15 picnic sites with fire rings and tables. Toilets are available but there is no potable water. The observation site is a popular stop for Hwy. 58 travelers. The 286' waterfall is the second highest in Oregon. After viewing the interpretive exhibits at the kiosk, it is a mere 75 yards around to the viewing platform and a magnificent site. From the viewing platform, you can either venture down to the bottom of the falls or follow along the top of the rim to stand (behind the railing of course) within a few yards of where the water takes its plunge to the pool below. A trail follows along Salt Creek to the picnic area, a perfect spot for lunch. Late spring, early summer brings added beauty to the site when the rhododendrons are blooming.
