Location In Deschutes National Forest in Deschutes County, Oregon. Tumalo Creek flows into the Deschutes River just north of Bend.

National forest recreation site. Tumalo Falls is a day use area on Tumalo Fals Rd, 12 miles west of Bend. Follow Franklin Ave. west from downtown Bend through the park to Galveston Rd. This turns into Skyliner Dr. (paved) which leads to Tumalo Falls Rd (gravel).

There is a picnic area, toilet, and an uphill (possibly wheelchair accessible?) path to a falls overlook. This is also a trailhead for numerous hiking and mountain biking trails in the area. There is a $5 per day use fee or use a Northwest Forest Pass or Golden Eagle Pass.


It is a short walk on a maintained trail to the overlook area at the top of the falls.

There are also hiking trails to several other waterfalls within 2 miles of the parking lot, but we didn't have time to explore them.
