As you may notice in the directions given below, the negative about Bridge Creek Falls is finding the exact point to pull off the very curvy OR-6 to get to these falls. Once you’ve done that, the hike to the falls is very enjoyable. I was very impressed by this smaller falls in the northern coast range of Oregon. I think I was partly impressed by the ability to get closer to the falls. I had been to the much larger Munson Creek Falls earlier that day, and was disappointed that I wasn’t able to get close to the falls, as they were blocked off by a number trees. Bridge Creek Falls has no issues of that sort, so you can play around to get a number of different views of the falls.
1) These directions to Bridge Creek Falls are based on starting at the junction of US-101 and OR-6 in Tillamook on the coast.
2) From that junction, head east on OR-6 for almost 20 miles.
3) This is where it can get a little bit tricky. Look for mile marker 21 on OR-6. Go almost 1 mile past this mile marker. On your right, you will notice a “pulloff” and a sign indicating a falls. The sign is NOT very big, and can be easy to miss the first time around. If you get to mile marker 20, you’ve gone just a little bit too far. You’ll have to turn around and figure out how to get back to the pulloff.
4) You may have to backtrack on foot for a few feet to get to the stairs leading to the falls. Once you find those stone stairs, it is just a very short distance to the falls.
