NUT Hikes and Waterfalls
July 2020 Lemolo Falls on the NUT Dread and Terror segment is a spectacular 3 mile RT hike in a breathtaking forest. There’s 2 notable falls before stunning 102 foot Horsetail type Lemolo Falls. An Irish Setter and 4 enthusiastic hikers love this place. In Chinook jargon Lemolo means ‘wild or untamed’. Warm Springs Falls is more remote and harder to locate being on an unmarked spur road leading to an unmarked trailhead. Even odder is that the newly renovated 0.3 mi trail is flat and smooth and handicapped accessible. The viewpoint has a newly built deck with railings to safely view this spectacular stunning Block type 70 foot waterfall beside a 100 foot columnar basalt cliff that is part of a geologically recent lava flow. Crystal Springs and River is at the East end of Lemolo Lake and a lovely tributary of the North Umpqua.
