General Description

Coquille River Falls Trail, located near Squaw Lake and Island Campgrounds, offers a 0.5 mile hike. This trail is maintained on an annual basis. Leaving the road, the trail switches back and forth through a virgin stand of undisturbed Douglas-fir, hemlock, and Port-Ortford cedar. The trail ends at the Coquille River Falls. When arriving at the Falls, care should be taken, since the trail is steep and almost always wet, footing is very insecure when descending to the river.

Directions from Powers: Go south on County Road #219 to Forest Service Road #33 to Road #3348, travel one mile up Road #3348 to trailhead.

Seasonal Information:
Normally Open: Year-round .
