Toketee Falls (near Diamond Lake, Ore)

Rating (Out of 5): 4.5

Location: Near Roseburg/Diamond Lake

Distance: 1 mile round-trip

Difficulty: Easy

Camping: Not on the trial

Quick hit: A trail leads visitors through an old-growth forest along the North Umpqua River with views of cascading water through a narrow rock gorge. The trail has 200 steps leading to a sturdy deck overlooking the two-tiered falls.

The upper descent drops 40-feet, and the lower falls plunge 80-feet over a sheer wall of volcanic basalt. In the Chinook language, the word "Toketee" means "pretty", or "graceful", an apt name for this inspiring waterfall. The trail is for hikers only.

Directions: At milepost 58.6 on Hwy. 138 turn north onto Road 34. Stay left at the Y and cross the bridge. Trailhead road is 200 feet on the left. The trailhead is well-marked.
