wonderful waterfalls, rambling streams, monstrous trees, overlooks and lots of tourist (near the lower levels of the falls) to get a chuckle out of trying to hike in flip flops or sandles. would of loved to have more time to explore deeper into the forest.

view was amazing, love the siuslaw national forrest. the hike wasn't a hike it was more of a drive to the top and an enormously steep uphill climb that lasts all but 3-5 minutes. check out the wild flowers.

This was a fun drive and pit stop on my friends and my road trip. The road twists and turns and affords beautiful views of crater lake and the surrounding areas. There is some congestion around cleetwood cove. Overall it made for a fun detour from our road trip south

The view is fantastic from the top but it's usually pretty crowded. Great place to take visitors.

I loved this hike! Yes, it was a very hard hike but it was also amazing! It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But it is also a 1,400 ft elevation gain in 2 miles. Bring lots of water if you are going to do this hike! (:

We were hopeful when we got there, it looked like a pretty sweet hike. But the trail was confusing and it was muggy and smelt horrible when you got close to the water. We didnt even finish the hike.

Magic happens about 2 miles in, and you won't stop being amazed until you get back to the start. Still one of my all-time favorite hikes. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

It's a short easy hike. A wide trail. I've hiked the area for a while but didn't realize that the waterfall was there. February 2013 I hiked further down the trail along the Rogue river. There were some amazing trees in that area that didn't appear to have any bark. The area is along the avenue of Boulders. If you have small children with you I'd advise not to go past the falls. The area along the Rogue is steep and has a sheer drop off to a class V rapids on the Rogue
