Aumsville

Before pioneers circled their wagons in Aumsville, this Willamette Valley spot was the home of the Calapooia Tribe.

Hikers delight in an epic 10-waterfall loop at Silver Falls State Park, and bird-watchers flock to Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge. This tranquil locale near the North Santiam River is a gateway to white-water rafting, road biking and wine tasting. Shuck a cob at the annual corn festival in August.

Ask Oregon

What are some good drives to see waterfalls that are just a short hike from the road?

Thanks for the question!  There are some very easy-to-follow routes for waterfall lovers.  I recommend you either order a free copy of the Oregon Scenic Byways magazine or view it online as it really outlines the routes with beautiful pictures.  As far as the time of year, there will be more water at other times…
