Great hike on a well maintained single track trail. Met one cyclist. Most of walk is along or within ear-shot of water. Nice pool at 3-3.5 miles.
Directions listed here were accurate and easy to follow. No toilet at trailhead :)

Haven't hiked it in a while but remember it being beautiful and hard, but we had to turn back because the trail wasn't being maintained. Too many fallen trees on the trail

I hiked Chucksney Mountain on June 25 via Chucksney Trail and then Grasshopper Trail on the way back to make it a loop.

The total distance is just about 11 Miles... but felt like 15 or 16 due to a large number of blowdowns on both trails (Chucksney being the worst). As I did not see a single soul for the whole 6 hours I surmise that more astute hikers may have gotten news that the House Keeping crew had not yet gotten to clear all the fallen trees. Climbing over, ducking under, bushwhacking my way around, walking on a couple logs for 200 feet in one case made this medium distance hike a rather challenging one. The trails (especially Chucksney again) was overgrown in many places. On the "challenges" side I can also mention the bugs and mosquitoes at the top (thank you Bug Spray!).

If you are lucky enough to find the trail "spruced up" this would be a rather enjoyable forest walk or workout depending on your shape. There are a few views on the way up Chucksney trail but the best is really from the top where you can see many peak of the Cascades (Diamond Peak, Bachelor, the three Sisters, Broken Top, Jefferson...even Hood.

If you are only doing this hike for the views, its a long way to go; but maybe, like me, you find many pleasures in spending a few hours following a trail :-)

Good hike. Trails are nicely marked. Mosquitos are terrible so bring bug spray!!! Got caught in a thunderstorm but it was cool. Did this hike with my dog and he had fun playing in the creek. Salt creek trail was super busy but we had the diamond falls trail to ourselves.

Short paved ADA-accessible trail. Great for if you've got friends or family with mobility issues who want to hike to a picturesque waterfall.

Long drive, short hike but rewarding view and the chance to cool your feet in the water just after it spills over the edge. We'll be back.

The trail is very short for the amount of driving to get there, but I loved this waterfall. The narrow gravel road makes the drive take longer than I anticipated. I would plan for this to take most of the day if your coming from Eugene to see all three falls.

Absolutely beautiful!! There's even a picnic table so you can have your lunch out there while taking in the scenery. If it wasn't so cold I would have gotten in the water....get there early, less people.

Incredible falls and river. You can even hike to the top of the falls on a more steep and difficult trail for an incredible view.

Spirit falls was easy and very pretty, had a nice picnic area. Moon falls was a little drive away from Spirit falls but also very pretty and a nice hike.
