Hidden Falls Nature Park

14488 SE 152nd Ave., Happy Valley

A true urban oasis, Hidden Falls Nature Park is open to the public and features an extraordinary natural waterfall that was previously inaccessible for decades. Owned and operated by NCPRD, the park provides new recreational opportunities and connections to nature – conserving forested habitat and a vital green corridor for the benefit of people and wildlife in North Clackamas.

The park features a timber bridge over Rock Creek, a multi-use trail, resting areas and views of the waterfall. The new 0.84-mile segment of paved trail provides a key link in the regional Mt. Scott/Scouters Mountain Trail Loop and serves as a pedestrian corridor to connect local public facilities such as Oregon Trail Elementary School and Pioneer Park to the west, as well as Rock Creek Middle School, Verne Duncan Elementary School and Hood View Park to the east.

Getting There

There are two main access points to Hidden Falls Nature Park. To the north of Rock Creek, there is an entrance at Pioneer Dr. and 156th Ave. To the south of Rock Creek, there is an entrance point on 162nd Ave., just past the dead end and alongside Hood View Park.
