Mosier Creek Falls

Western Gorge, oregon

The trail begins on the east side of Mosier Creek, next to a park bench. Mosier’s Pocket Park trail, gently climbs above the rim of Mosier Creek Gorge. Take a minute to walk through the small pioneer cemetery. Next you’ll come to a viewing area, peering into the deep canyon and looking upriver to the falls. Continue through the oak groves to the top of the 100-ft waterfall. This makes for a nice picnic spot or if you’re feeling more adventurous, jump off the cliff into the sparkling pool below that is surprisingly warm in the summer.
