Upper Trestle Creek Falls is accessible but Lower Trestle Creek Falls is still inaccessible due to the 2019 winter storm. Enjoy this scenic 60 foot (18,3 m) horsetail waterfall ensconced in a moss-covered rock grotto ringed by old-growth forest. Trestle Creek is part of the Row River watershed and located in the Umpqua National Forest. Trestle Creek Falls Trail #1403C is a moderate .75-mile (1,2-km) narrow, meandering trail popular with families. Hike directly behind the waterfall by continuing on Trestle Creek Falls Trail #1403D for another, more challenging 2.5 miles (4 km). Discover this waterfall approximately 46 miles (74 km) south of Eugene, near the town of Cottage Grove. Best flows are March to June.
