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.

Come on guys the hike is not that bad. Me and my girlfriend finished it within 30mins from the trailhead to the falls and we were pretty slow. We even saw a 10-year-old complete it without a problem. But of course going on a sunny day could make your life much easier!
beautiful falls! treacherous trail that is difficult to find but highly rewarding! Road turns to gravel then technically you could drive to the trailhead if your vehicle has good clearance. there is a yellow sign for a gate then just beyond is the trail. there are two 'private property' signs on the correct path.
The trail is steep and is about 40 minute hike from the road, but it's well worth it. Took our Aussie and he enjoyed it; might be difficult for smaller kids. Breathtaking sight!!
Really good hike, make sure you have 4WD before attempting the road down to the trailhead, there’s a lot of loose rock.
This trail was definitely a lot of fun! If you drive all the way to the trailhead, I recommend a vehicle with high clearance and 4x4 (especially for the drive back up), otherwise you could rip your power steering lines or damage an axle. This trail was lightly trafficked when I went on a Wednesday. Only passed 5 other people. There are ropes in place in some steep areas that some kind soul was thoughtful enough to install, I made use of most of them. I used a map and my ears, and continued upstream until I found the falls. This is a treasure! Towering walls engulf the falls area with jagged, sharp shapes that house dramatic shadows with contrasting, vibrant greenery growing out of the rock walls. The waterfall is close to 100 feet tall, and in early June when I went the waters were flowing with powerful force. I am in one of my photos of the fall, to the left - I look like an ant. I definitely recommend this trail. I can't wait to come back and bring my son!
