Cosper Creek Falls is west of McMinnville.
GPS N45º 4.089', W123º 34.469', Elevation above sea level 380 ft.
Halfway to the coast on either HWY 18 (McMinnville) or HWY 22 (Salem),
the two highways briefly combine.
In the picture from February you can see mud in the flow due to a high winter runoff.
- At Valley Junction (18/22) where a sign for Hebo/Tillamook is shown, turn north onto HWY 22
- In a half mile, park at a wide spot to the right (where a large rock with a smily face sits)
- Cosper Creek Falls can be viewed at the wide spot (there's a path down to the creek near the rock)
Facilities available at Fort Hill just east of Valley Junction.
Gunaldo Falls is 12.5 miles further up HWY 22
