Tumalo Falls

Tumalo Falls is a spectacular plunge along Tumalo Creek, just a short distance outside the city of Bend. Although this waterfall is easy to get to, and hence is a popular destination, it is still a compelling and undeniably exhilarating waterfall. There is a great viewpoint from the parking area which is easy to reach. A short hike up the trail will bring you to a superb overlook at the top of the waterfall.

One person measured the waterfall with a laser rangefinder and clinometer, and found it to be 131 ft. high. Every other publication lists the waterfall as being 97 ft. high.
