OR | Hike | Waterfall Scramble

This hike goes from high in the mountains down into the foothills, scrambling over boulders and small drops to get to obscure and hard to find waterfalls. The waterfalls themselves are usually in excess of 20 ft, getting larger the further down the mountains we come, until we get to Tumalo Falls which is 97 ft tall.
Great picturesque views, some cool plants, maybe a swimming hole if it is warm enough. There are two options for the trip, a long and a shorter hike, depending on what you are up for and how many waterfalls you want to see. Afterwards, I can give you some recommendations for great places to eat and drink in Bend.
