Stairstep falls of the onion River in early spring

 

Stair Step Falls of Onion River

mile 86.6

Climb the wooden steps and hike above the river to view the cascades near the river mouth then continue another 1/2 mile to see the Stair Step Falls. Can only be seen before the trees leaf out and is best in spring when the river rushes. Easy to follow trail from parking at the Ray Berglund Wayside and Recreation Site.

 

		

Length: 1.15 miles
Difficulty: easy
