Abiqua Falls

~3–4 mi Roundtrip, ~2–3 hr, Intermediate

HOW TO GET THERE: Technically Abiqua Falls is in Marion County and not Portland. It is about 55mi or 1.5 hrs outside. It’s pretty confusing finding the trailhead so I’m going to do my best explaining it. In Google Maps put: Crooked Finger OHV.

Here are the directions if service out there fails you. Take 213-S, after you pass Molalla, but before you reach Silverton, turn East for Scotts Mills and then turn south (left) for Crooked Finger Road. You might just want to map to Crooked Finger Road NE, but after 10.8 mi (first 9.5 mi is paved, last 1.3 mi isn’t) turn right onto an unmarked forest road. After about 0.9 mi you will reach a parking area on your right, I think somewhere at the 0.5 mi mark there’s a fork but always go straight (right). You can drive beyond this parking area but high clearance vehicles are recommended. We had a Prius so for sure would not have made it.
