Abiqua Falls Trailhead is a popular hiking area in Marion County, Oregon. Though this is a private property, it is open to the public. Hard to find and harder to reach, this waterfall is a paradise for nature lovers. There are steep slopes surrounded by scenic woods which will take you to the waterfall. But, be prepared to walk with the help of the rope as the landscapes are a bit tricky. But, it is worth all the efforts as the actual site is full of natural beauty. Sitting by the edge listening to the sound of cascading water will soothe your mind. Consider visiting this waterfall to spend some quality time away from a chaotic city.

Abiqua Falls Trailhead Reviews & Ratings
A most awe inspiring waterfall. No the adventure in is just that an adventure. Not knowing how far there is left to get to where your going is crazy. Park as low as you can , but be careful. It's easy to get high centered. Take lots of water and enjoy
Easily one of the top 5 of the 150 Oregon waterfalls I have seen. The hike itself is a adventure, you drive down a pothole ridden gravel road on cliffs until you see the trailhead sign on the left. Then hike straight on the trail until you reach the ropes you have to use to assist you on your decent down to the river, then walk left along the river until your breath is taken away by the beauty of these secluded falls. Moderate hike, if in good shape. High clearance vehicle recommended, this is one of the worst forest roads ever.
This is one of the coolest hiking place in Oregon. The waterfall at the end of the hike is worth it. If you like nature then you shouldn't miss this place. Can take your dogs along with you as well 😊☺️.
This place is breathtaking. You can go with kids, but it's definitely better to go without them (they complain about all the walking, obviously haha). From where we parked, it took us about 20 minutes to get to the trail, from the gravel road. You can drive to the beginning of the trail, but only if you have AWD/4X4. At some points, you gotta have that 'flex' in your suspension! Just walk. Then there's no way you'll get stuck!
Amazing waterfall and swimming hole. Before going, BE PREPARED! The paved road ends and turns into gravel, keep following the gravel road until you get to an big open area. If you care about the integrity of your car, park there and walk down to the trail. This is the safest option. You'll walk about a mile, maybe longer, unto you get to the trailhead. Once you get to the trailhead, it's straight down to the creek then take a left where you'll see the trail takes you directly to the waterfall. It's very rocky and slippery but there are ropes to help you climb up and down on the more difficult parts. I wouldn't suggest bringing children or dogs unless they are very active and experienced. If you decide not to park in the open gravel area, be prepared that road narrows and only allows 1 car. There are turn out spots to let cars pass. Some cars park in those turn outs but I don't suggest that just in case a car might side swipe your car due to the narrow road. Not only does it get narrow, it is very rocky with potholes. The more you drive, the worse it gets.
