Really fun hike that only takes a few hours, was hoping to gain a little more elevation but still was amazing and will be back to this one.

This hike is almost too good to be true. After the second waterfall its difficult not to feel aesthetically spoiled. If you plan on completing the loop, prepare for a 4-5 hr day. This is definitely the most family friendly hike I've encountered as the trail is very well maintained and accessible to people of all skill sets. The loop has various entrances around the park, so it can easily be enjoyed as just a segment. The visitor center provides maps.

*Save your picnic until the later falls as there are a number of benches located behind a waterfall which provides a spectacular view.*

This app takes you to the campsite .9 mile past the trailhead. This time of year, the river was high and fast, super mossy, green forest!! There was no one else out there today and it was perfect for my dog today!!! Easy trail, a bit slippery today, be safe!!

awesome trails definitely will go again dog friendly

Hiked misery ridge at 4am to watch the sunrise and it was well worth the early morning wake up call. Trails are maintained very well and it appropriate for all skill levels. One of these days I will have to muster up the courage to climb monkey face. Watch out for rattle and bull snakes in the summer!

Absolutely beautiful trail. The hike is easy and the reward is big. Unreal scenery that not even the best camera could capture the beauty. Ended the hike with a very chilly plunge into the water! 10/10 would recommend to anyone of any skill level

Nice hike and amazing falls! If you have not done this hike what are you waiting for? Go do it!

Beautiful hike but trail is not clearly marked! Make sure you give yourself plenty of time before the sun goes down!

Easy hike close to town, Great mountain views from Eagle point. Clean area can get crowded, parking very limited.

11/26/16 wet slippery trail covered in leaves. Added a slight challenge, no problems. Took the longest upper loop trail from parking lot. No one around, clean. The tree fort is gone, looked like it was burned out and the tree is dead.

If ur looking for epic results in a short amount of time or effort, then this is for you!! Amazing falls!!! One of the best of the north west! Must see!!!(and I've been to almost all!) enjoy!!!

Beautiful walk/hike along the river with SEVERAL waterfalls and rapids.

I think this has to be one of my favorite trails. Very fairytale like, I went when there was a minimal amount of people and got lost in a sea of green, lost figuratively. It has beautiful views, definitely worth it and very easy quick hike.

This canyon is one truly special place. The amazing thing is that it is so close to Salem. I went the day before Thanksgiving and encountered maybe 10 other people. The scenery is breathtaking, the trail is well maintained, the waterfalls are stunning. You will need to work for it on this one but it's worth every step.

Absolutely Beautiful!! One of my favorite hiking places.
