Sunday, April 19, 2015, 8:00AM — Hike to Kentucky Falls

Difficulty: Moderate
Length: 4.4 Mile Round-trip
Elevation: 800 feet elevation loss and gain

This day-hike takes us to three of the Coast Range's most spectacular waterfalls.  The trailhead is located at a parking area/toilet facility off of Forest Road 919 in the Siuslaw National Forest.  The trail begins in old growth Douglas fir.  After about .8 miles the trail descends to the base of the 100-foot-high Upper Kentucky Falls.  In another 1.4 miles the trail ends in a misty grotto where 100-foot-high Lower Kentucky Falls and 120-foot-high North Fork Falls can be viewed.  After a short lunch, we will retrace our steps and regain the 800-foot elevation that we “lost.” The trail is well marked and is suitable for all levels from beginner to expert. Good hiking boots and rain gear (depending on the weather forecast) are strongly recommended.  There will be plenty time allowed for viewing and photographing the falls.


You can find more information about the trail and area here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/siuslaw/recarea/?recid=42455

Carpool: We will meet at the northeast parking lot of South Eugene High School at 8:00 AM on Sunday, April 18, and leave by no later than 8:30 AM for the trailhead.  The trailhead is 48 miles west of Eugene (approximately 33 miles east of Eugene on Highway 126 and then 15 miles on curvy gravel and paved roads.  The estimated return time back to Eugene is by no later than 4 PM.   Please be prepared to share expenses with the driver.

Preparation: Bring a large lunch, plentiful water, rain jacket, extra layer of clothing and hiking boots. You may also want to bring a small tarp or foam pad to sit on during lunch as the ground is likely to be moist.

Dogs: In accordance with National Sierra Club policy, dogs, other than certified assistance dogs, are allowed only at designated dog events. Due to safety concerns this outing is not a designated dog outing.

A $3 suggested donation to help support our outings program would be greatly appreciated.
