Abiqua Falls is a beautiful 92-foot waterfall that is rarely visited. Unlike many other waterfalls in Oregon, this one is not regarded as a tourist attraction. Although open to the public for recreational purposes, it is on private land owned by the Mount Angel Abbey. Access to the falls themselves requires travel along several miles of rough fire roads (four-wheel drive recommended), a steep climb down into the stream gorge, and multiple scrambles over boulders and fallen trees. The trek is worth it though, for the falls plunge into a wonderful basaltic amphitheater that's like a natural cathedral.
