What takes your breath away is the crystal clear water, blue in places and stunning as it cascades down Brice Creek and over several small falls along the trail.  The trail through the lush green rain forest, overflowing with ferns and wildlife is nothing to scoff at either.  The Brice Creek Trail is simply stunning and a must for forest bathers, hikers, and those looking for a place to cool off in summer.

Brice Creek Trail And Trestle Creek Falls

Brice Creek Trail is a moderate 8.1 mile out and back trail, though it has many access points for those wishing to take a shorter hike.  The trail is located near Dorena Oregon on the Western slope of the Cascades and follows Brice Creek through a stunning rocky canyon.  Check out this video to get an idea of what the trail is like and how beautiful the water is:

The Brice Creek Trail in Oregon is open year round, which is a good thing because it’s even more stunning in the Fall.

Note: Swimming or cliff jumping into rivers or pools of water can be dangerous because of slippery rocks, currents, underwater obstacles and a variety of other reasons.  This is an at-your-own-risk activity.
