Location and directions
From the intersection of Highways 211 and 213 near the town of Molalla, drive east through Molalla and turn right on Mathias Road, also signed for the Molalla River Recreation Area. Mathias makes a hard left and becomes S Feyrer Park Road and crosses the Molalla River in 2 miles. Bear right immediately after crossing the river and drive for 5 1/4 miles (now along South Dickey Prairie Road) and turn right, crossing the Molalla River again onto South Molalla River Road (follow the pavement rather than staying straight on the gravel road). Proceed another 5 1/2 miles to a wide turnout on the right shortly before a sheer cliff parallels the road. Park and walk up the road for 200 feet to the creek. A path leads along the right side of the creek to the falls in about 300 feet.

During the winter months the spray coming off the falls will be problematic but as the volume drops it should have a negligible impact. The alcove harboring the falls is quite exposed and will see direct sunlight during the first half of the day, but should be well shaded by the late afternoon.
