Waterfalls Trails State Park


This park is home to several famous attractions along the Oregon Coast, including the tallest waterfall in the Coastal Range as well as several historic Western Red Cedar and Sitka Spruce. There are many hiking trails in the area, with the most popular being the trail to Munson Creek Falls. The hike itself is about .6 miles from the trailhead and weaves its way through the lush Oregon coast. 

Once begining on the trail, hikers will go through a box canyon and follow the Munson Creek. The trail is covered by a nice canopy of of thick trees and provides great shade during the summer months. There is a viewing area accessible from a few steps on the way up, though the trail ends beyond this point with a caution sign saying "Danger Do Not Go Beyond This Point". The watrfall itself is three-tiered, and is 319 ft tall.
