Hike Little Zigzag Falls Trail Near Government Camp 

If you’re looking for a short, scenic hike near Government Camp, Oregon, look no further than Little Zigzag Falls Trail. This easy, out-and-back trail is just under a mile long and follows Little Zigzag Creek to a beautiful 41′ waterfall, called Little Zigzag Falls. 

How to Get to Little Zigzag Falls

The trailhead for Little Zigzag Falls is located just off Highway 26, about halfway between Portland and Mount Hood. From the highway, it’s a short, steep walk down to the creek. Once you’re at the creek, the trail is flat and easy to follow as it winds through a shady forest alongside a cool, mountain stream. 

After about half a mile, you’ll reach the falls. They’re not very big, but they’re still worth checking out. If you have some time and energy left, you can continue upstream for another mile or so before the trail starts to get steep and difficult. 

This is a great hike for families with small children, or anyone looking for an easy hike near Mt Hood. It’s also a popular spot for swimming in the summertime. So, if you’re looking for a refreshing spot to cool off on a hot day, this is the perfect place to do it.
