The Diamond Creek Falls Trail (#3598) is a 2.5 mile moderate hike. Beginning at the bridge, this scenic loop follows the canyon rims of Salt and Diamond Creek. Beautiful, cascading Diamond Creek Falls is on the outer end of the loop, and several viewpoints along the rim expose views of other sparkling falls and Salt Creek canyon. From Upper Diamond Creek Falls, the trail climbs a short distance to meet Vivian Lake Trail #3662 before descending eastward, returning to Salt Creek Falls.
For the more adventurous hiker there is a challenging 0.25 mile side trail leading to the base of Upper Diamond Creek Falls. Access to Fall Creek Falls is via the Vivian Lake Trail #3662. The falls are about 1.5 miles (mostly uphill) from the Diamond Creek Falls Trail.
Directions from Oakridge: Proceed east 22 miles on Hwy. 58 to the Salt Creek Falls turnoff, Road 5893. The observation site and parking are about 1 mile from the Hwy. 58 junction. Turn right on Road 5893-010 just before the bridge crossing Salt Creek.
