Exploring Roseburg Oregon: Hike to Watson Falls

    Magnificent and unheralded, Watson Falls ranks not far behind Crater Lake as a southern Oregon “must see” scenic attraction. The enchanted little trail, even if you take your time and savor every step, requires less than an hour out of your life. The falls are just off the North Umpqua Highway, 18 miles from Diamond Lake. Watson Falls is reputedly Oregon’s second-highest waterfall, although Salt Creek Falls, near Willamette Pass out of Eugene, claims the same distinction. Both plummet 272 feet. Watson and Salt Creek Falls are the highest waterfalls between Multnomah Falls (600 feet) and California’s Yosemite Valley (several over 1000 feet). The 300-foot-high escarpment responsible for Watson Falls is the nose of a giant lava flow that emanated from the Mount Bailey area some 750,000 years ago.
