This was a very nice hike. If you're a seasoned hiker, it's fairly easy. For those who don't hike often or are not used to the altitude, I would say it's moderate. We did the whole loop, but the part coming back wasn't anything overly breathtaking. (You do get a bit of a "lost in the woods" feel on that part, and it's far less traveled. We literally didn't see a single person on the way back down.) I would recommend that you stay on the main trail going up and then turn around and take it back down. A very beautiful hike.

Easy loop. Great for a medium length ride with some hills.

FYI! A lot of reviews and websites say that the bat hibernation closure is in November. I am here now. October 1 it closes. So any out there looking for a rain day activity this will not be it . Good luck. It made me put star rating on it. I didn't want to as I haven't seen it

Great ride to get your feet under you. First half is a slight rise while the latter is almost entirely downhill. There are a few technical spots on the second half worth keeping an eye out for but overall it's a pretty easy ride. Watch out for the small gaps between the trees.

so awesome climbing this mountain in the snow. Highly recommend

Great short hike with rewarding views! I like to take the nature trail on the way up, and the road on the way down for variety.

This is a must-do! 4 out of 5 simply because of heavy traffic. Bring sunscreen, about 3+ liters of water (in warmer weather), and take your time.

Easy trail. I loved the info plaques along the trail. Lots of geese and ducks.

Great hike in a beautiful forest! Road was a bit bumpy coming in and parking is limited. Easy hike and there is a branch in the hike that brings you right to the falls- it's great!

The trail to the top of the waterfall is nice but a better trail can take you behind and under the waterfall.

This is more a walking path than a hiking trail, but it's a great in and out for a walk/run when in Bend.

Nice hike through through a sort of Hansel & Gretel like forest. It's a shared trail with bikes, so be aware.

Awesome, easy trail with very light traffic on a weekday besides a couple of mountain bikes. Would be a great trail for a run or a dog that doesn't mind bikes.

busy busy, but wonderful in the spring and fall. Enjoy!
