As you can see we started the day in good spirits!
Drift Creek Falls Trail~ this trail is not far from Lincoln City and is located in the Siuslaw National Forrest. The trail is 3 miles round trip with a elevation change of 400 feet. It is listed as a easy to moderate hike.
We were ready and excited to hit the trail!
Get ready..... get set....
One of the bridges over the creek.
This is the 240 foot suspension bridge that spans the rocky creek bed. I must admit that my stomach did a bit of jumping around as I looked WAY down at the rocks below and felt the bridge bounce and sway as we crossed.
The falls is described as a 75 foot "horse tail" falls. Below: Drift Creek Falls as viewed from the bridge.
Of course no hike is complete without a picnic lunch! Today's lunch consisted of sandwiches from Subway. Yummy! I loved the rustic "picnic table".
This was such a fun hike and I thought it was very family friendly.
During our travels we saw some great scenery.
And this great covered bridge.
In the evening we enjoyed supper and fireworks with some friends.
There was no shortage of smoke or silliness!
My littlest man was not sure what to think.
