Hidden Falls in Clackamas, Oregon is an easy 0.8-mile out-and-back hike into Deep Creek canyon and features a waterfall.

This trail is a short, easy hike down to a scenic waterfall in the Portland metropolitan area. The path is paved and wide, as it makes its way down in a series of wide switchbacks. This is the main approach, but you can also reach the falls from the other end of this path, in the residential development on the other side of the creek.

The waterflow is more significant in winter, but stays flowing all summer long. There is a suspension bridge across the creek that provides views of not only the falls, but also the dark fern lined basalt canyon of Deep Creek. There are also designated viewpoints on either side of the creek. The east side viewpoint provides views from the top of the falls, and the west side viewpoint provides better head-on views of the face of the falls.

The both Hidden Falls and the Deep Creek canyon are located in a lush rainforest environment, filled with Douglas fir, Western Hemlock, Bigleaf Maples, and Western Red Cedar trees. The understory is lush with native salal, snowberry, and various native ferns. Along the path down to the canyon, it is much more altered, devoid of its original plant and tree life, although it has been planted with various native and ornamental plants and tree saplings.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out with the hiker.
