TRAIL ALERT: In June 2020, Mosier City Council voted to keep all their city parks closed until Sept. 17. With the closure of their city parks, including Pocket Park, the Mosier Creek Falls trail will also remain effectively closed until Sept. 17.
 

 


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.
