Description

Your first look at Cottonwood Creek Falls can be stunning. Maybe it’s the effort it takes to see them, maybe it’s the unexpectedness of them existing only a few hundred feet from a (seemingly) waterless expanse, maybe it’s the cool breeze and spray wafting up from them, or maybe it’s the little rainbow at the base of the falls. Regardless, seeing them is totally worth it. Amazing!

All-Day Run: The run to reach the falls is 14 miles round-trip on-and-off-trail from the Howlock Mountain Trailhead at the north end of Diamond Lake, Oregon. The falls are located on the largely trail-less east side of the Mount Thielsen Wilderness.
