Benham Falls

Distances vary according to starting point

Benham falls is one of Deschutes River's most popular falls, and we get the pleasure of being able to hike or bike next to it! The hike along the river takes you through a rocky beautiful pine forest where you'll enjoy the rush of the falls. You won't see the kind of tall Cascading falls you did it Tumalo, but the stretch of exciting whitewater and lovely views is just as good! Benham Falls is also right next to two other major trails with falls along them, Dillon Falls and Lava Island falls. On your hike you can make a trip to all three!
