The Steamboat Falls Hike is a fun little adventure in Umpqua National Forest, Oregon that will lead you down to a scenic waterfall along Steamboat Creek. While out on the trail, you will make your way through the tree cover to the water’s edge, where you will find both the falls and several places to swim.
