Pacific Northwest Spring Break Itinerary – April 1, 2021 to April 11, 2021

Our Pacific Northwest Itinerary covered an 11-day Spring Break trip to Southern Idaho, Northern Oregon, and Northern California.

Devil’s Falls

Devils Falls (or Devil’s Falls) may not require any hiking, but it involved driving the dusty and twisty Yankee Jim’s Road between Colfax and Foresthill.

Hollow Falls

Hollow Falls was a short detour off the Phantom Falls Trail in the North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve, where I noticed croaking frogs and wildflowers.

Lower Ravine Falls

Lower Ravine Falls was one of the quieter out-of-the-way waterfalls that deviated from the busier Phantom Falls Trail, which made it a nice alternative.

Phantom Falls

Phantom Falls is a seasonal 164ft waterfall on the Gold Run dropping into a columnar basalt-rich canyon on a trail in a pasture full of Spring wildflowers.

Drift Creek Falls

Drift Creek Falls was a popular 66ft waterfall on Horner Creek situated beneath a 240ft long suspension bridge spanning the gorge carved out by Drift Creek.

Pheasant Creek Falls and Niagara Falls

Pheasant Creek Falls and Niagara Falls were a surprise waterfall pairing within a fairly remote part of the Siuslaw National Forest near the Oregon Coast.

Crescent Beach Waterfall

The Crescent Beach Waterfall was the waterfaller’s excuse to explore the pristine Crescent Beach in Ecola State Park as it featured sea arches and vistas.

Hug Point Waterfall

The Hug Point Waterfall is a modest-sized seasonal waterfall spilling onto a beach featuring caves, sea stacks, and a shelf that once was a stagecoach road!

Upper Latourell Falls

Upper Latourell Falls is a 75-100ft tall sibling to the much taller and more accessible Latourell Falls, but that meant a more intimate hiking experience.

Pillar Falls

Pillar Falls was a waterfall lover’s excuse to explore the eccentric rock formations that gave rise to the ‘pillars’ in the middle of the Snake River.

Ritter Island Waterfalls

The Ritter Island Waterfalls were our excuse to experience the scenery of Ritter Island, which had its own collection of waterfalls as well as some history.

Box Canyon Springs Waterfall

The Box Canyon Springs Waterfall was our reward for a short hike encompassing the 11th largest spring in North America as well as the canyon it carved out.

Niagara Springs and Crystal Springs

Niagara Springs and Crystal Springs are just a couple of the countless groundwater springs emerging from cliffs towards the Snake River west of Twin Falls.

“Feel It All Around” (Southern Idaho, Oregon, and Northern California – April 1, 2021 to April 11, 2021)

“Devious Intentions” (Etiwanda Falls – February 27, 2021)
