You can do one side of the trail or loop it onto mckenzieriver trail. It's got some elevation gain. I'd say great for a beginner to set time and work on strength. Waterfalls are always beautiful no matter what time of year

Beautiful hike I do it five, six times a year. I start at carmen reservoir then loop around. I have a pass but it is free to park there and less traffic. The trail is well maintained a good work out if you pace right but also just a good relaxing getaway for a day hike.

Nice trail! Lots of cars even on a weekday morning. I made the mistake of going when it just had rained for a few days so there wasn't a pool- just a lot of rushing water-oops. Easy hike but occasionally there are vehicles on the "trail" which can come by a surprise.

This is my favorite hike. Period. Steep sections, wildflowers, 360° views of the Cascades. Love it.

Fantastic trail, especially if you go all the way to the top.

We hiked in 10/09/2016 and added Grizzly Peak - both are well maintained, low-traffic trails. The reason I'm giving two stars are the BEES - we had 6 people and everyone (including the dogs) got stung 2 or more times, and this was over the course of the entire hike. If you go just take precaution!

Loved this hike! We didn't get to the waterfall we had a large group and a bees nest we aren't sure if it was hornets or yellowjackets was stepped on, in the way to find the falls. Two people and three dogs were bitten and stung heavily. Scary moment but everyone's okay. So just be aware. As for the hike!❤️ great elevation changes, switchbacks different scenery from lava rock to maples to ferns and beat grass to oldgrowth to a amazing lake. Beautiful and a great escape. However I wish the trails at the lake were better marked.

It was a hard trail to find. It is right across the street from Goodman Creek trail. There are no postings or signs to indicate the difference. It was a beautiful hike throughout. It is all uphill and steep, but the view is breathtaking. I can't wait to go again!

Beautiful views at the top. It is a little difficult to find the caves, best to print out directions to store in backpack.

Great hike.

Good quick hike off side of Hwy 58 just East of Oakridge. Pretty forest hike and nice waterfall views.

Crowded at the pool and a scramble to get up and down, but the actual trail was flat and beautiful.
