From Highway 101 in Beaver:
Travel east on Blaine Road for 6 miles. At Blaine Junction go east on Upper Nestucca River Road for 5.8 miles to Forest Road 8533. Go south 4.3 miles to Forest Road 8533-131. Turn right at the junction and travel 0.7 miles to trailhead parking.
This is a short hike great for all seasons. If you are taking a trip to the coast and want to get a short hike in this is a great one. The two waterfalls at the end of the short trial rival those found in the Gorge or Silver Creek state park. From the Car Park the trail descends down the side of a creek bed to the confluence of Pheasant and Niagara creeks. The end of the trail is at the head of Niagara creek bed where both Niagra creek and pheasant creek plunge off of the cliff edge. The impressive thing about this trial is that both waterfalls are in the same spot, where the creeks come together.

A wonderful hike that I have done three times. Warning: The drive from Beaver is longer than it may seem given the mileage - windy and dirt road for much of it's length, but well graded for passenger cars. I liked it best in February - both falls were very full.
This is a great little hike, with a well managed trail. I went at the end of July and the water flow was minimal, but the location is secluded. The trail is very simple; I took my three children (ages, 6, 8, 12) and they loved the hike.
Joe's right... this is a very nice hike, and plenty easy for children. The only thing to watch for is that usually by July, the waterflow on both Niagara and Pheasant Creek are little more than a trickle. That doesn't detract from the beauty of the hike, of course!
