The Umpqua National Forest is located on the western side of the Cascade Mountains. Explosive geologic events shaped the unique landscape on the 983,129-acre forest, and provide incredible scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources. Visitors discover a diverse place of thundering rapids, high mountain lakes, and quiet ponds. The Forest is known by its many waterfalls, including the 293-foot Watson Falls on the North Umpqua Highway.
