Hidden on private land owned by the Mount Angel Abbey, Abiqua Falls is arguably one of Oregon's most spectacular waterfalls. The 92-foot waterfall is perfectly framed by an enormous basalt amphitheater adorned with lichens, mosses and various ferns, but what makes the hike to the classic cascade so special is that it is so difficult to find, making the end destination that much more rewarding.
As you venture past Scotts Mills, be sure to watch your odometer as none of the forest roads off of Crooked Finger Road are marked. Passing unfortunately large swaths of clear-cut forest you will eventually reach to the trailhead, which also isn't marked. See our driving directions for details.
