Beautiful hike! The burnt forest and a special spookiness to it.

An easy day hike, about 4 miles round trip out and back. Getting to the actual trailhead is a bit rough on the forest service roads but is well worth it! The new trailhead is surrounded by boulders, so park there. You then head down a small hill on the trail, near the river. As you walk along the creek, you are surrounded by bare trees that were destroyed in the pole creek fire. The trail is relatively easy, with only a few inclines but nothing major. When you near the falls, you cant miss the sound of the rushing water! Great views from above the falls.

Dusty and not much trees from forest fire. Will be sunny and hot.

Trees where blocking the road so we weren't able to make it to the trail. Really bummed.

I tried to reach the trail head in a saloon car. when I reached the off road section the center hump of road keeps hitting my car chassis. So I turned back. need a truck with high chassis to be safe. I hope to try again.

Be prepared for a miserable drive on a rough, jagged 2.5 mile road off the main road west of Sisters. Should not be attempted in a small vehicle. Once you get your offroading fix in and make it to the trailhead, the hike down to the base is short and the view really isn't that great--but read up on the hike before leaving so you know how and where to scramble to get to the real views, which make the experience slightly more worthwhile. I can name quite a few waterfall hikes I prefer, with a much less stressful drive to get there.

Absolutely beautiful! Really easy hike to get to the base of the falls. You can scramble up the rocks on the left side of the falls and go to the top where you have incredible views all around and complete solitude as there is no trail so there is never anyone up there.

The road and trail are good to the first of the three water falls. To the next two falls the trail dose disappears now and again keep the creek close you should have no trouble finding your way. The best is the last. It was a great hike with friends

Trail disappears here and there. You have to be adventurous to get to the best spots to see the three falls, which are fairly close together. Awesome hike

Very odd hike and drive, mostly drive.
No actual trailhead found no phone service so no iPhone gps. But found the falls.
Nice little creek with falls visible from atop if the ravine. No good photo spot.
