In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Lee Falls is one of Oregon's hidden waterfalls. It's a beautiful spot to cool off on a hot day, but be prepared for an adventure - you'll need to hike in at least an hour to get there (or better yet, go by bike!).
Heading south on state Highway 47, take a right onto SW Old Highway 47. Turn left on SW Patton Valley Road, a left on SW Cherry Grove Drive and a left on SW Lee Falls Road to reach the gate and the beginning of the hour-long hike to the falls on a flat, well-maintained gravel path.
NOTE: there is no parking at the end of the one-lane street leading to the gate; take heed of signs warning against parking as the lane must be kept clear for emergency vehicle access. The best way to access the falls is by bicycle.
