Picture of the Week: Butte Creek Falls

24 09 2013

With work on the forthcoming “Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon” guidebook wrapping up, I offer a photo from one of my favorite little hikes of the year – Butte Creek Falls. The hike to Butte Creek and Upper Butte Creek Falls would be fine destinations all by their lonesome. They are both beautiful and unique. But pair the two in the same hike with a truly memorable forest trail and you have as fine an outing as 1 mile can produce. Click on pic for larger view.

From the town of Scotts Mills, follow Crooked Finger Road for 11.4 miles and turn left onto Forest Road 400. Drive 1.8 more miles to the Butte Creek Falls trailhead on the left. GPS: N44 55.266 / W122 30.682.
