Toketee Falls

Toketee Falls

In the Chinook tongue, the word Toketee means pretty or graceful. Once you tackle the moderate 0.4-mile hike and climb the 200 steps leading to the observation deck, you’ll understand why these falls bear that name.

Among the many waterfalls along the Umpqua River’s scenic corridor, Toketee is one of the most visited and beloved. Words and photos don’t do it justice. You’ll just have to visit it for yourself to understand. Once you’re done enjoying the falls, you’ll also find Toketee Lake Campground and the Toketee Ranger Station nearby.

Lace up your hiking boots. This is not a trail or a hike for flip-flops. To find the falls, look for milepost 58.6 on Highway 138. Turn north on Road 34 and stay left at the Y to cross the bridge. The trailhead is 200 feet on the left.
