Go past the first fall, it will be worth it.

on Benton Falls Trail

The trail is mostly flat with rock steps down to the creek at the end. The falls are beautiful and look like a water wall. Nice easy walk.

Great 3mi round trip, the falls are about 60 ft and plan to get wet for some fun

Went last summer. Trail was pretty easy to work with although we had a little trouble finding it when we tried to drive in originally. The trail is located past all the camp sites and areas over by the lake. There were some stairs down that were wet, but the water was flowing really well and the waterfall was beautiful. Bunch of people would come through and go swimming so had to wait a bit to take my pictures, but it wasn't too bad. We came in right as a big group was leaving so just had to deal with the random people that would wander in and ignore the fact that I was trying to get pictures as they stood right in front of me. Very pretty place.

If you are looking for a good workout-this trail for you. Very long steady incline. 1 hour and 50 minute steady incline before a slight leveling out. Good views while no leaves on trees. No signs of wildlife.

This trail should be rated as difficult for the most of the way as you climb straight up the mountain. Good views in the fall and winter. The trail does narrow at certain points so be sure to have some hiking shoes with some aggressive lugs. I would also recommend taking a mid high hiking boot for ankle support. I would not recommend this trail for beginners or for family hikes. The trail head base is at a camp ground with benches, fire pits and restrooms. Also the trail was more like 8 miles on my GPS.

Boots required, moderate hike with great scenery and decent elevation gain. When not in drought two creek crossings that are slightly above ankle deep.

hard trail for beginners. Great views in the winter.

Do NOT go up the dirt/gravel road (Parksville Rd /Benton Springs Rd) That's where the GPS took us the first time, and it's a poorly maintained gravel road with steep slopes and no guard rails, it is seriously dangerous. Even with 4 wheel drive I'd avoid it, as it is very narrow. There's a perfectly good normal road (Oswald Rd.) that will take you up to the top of the mountain, and it's very close by. I also recommend filling up on gas/supplies before you go up the mountain, as it takes a while to go back and forth.

That said, the trail itself is lovely. It's very easy, beautiful, and the falls at the end are really nice. It's a fairly busy trail. There's a lake at the top of the mountain and picnic tables, but I actually recommend going to Parksville lake at the bottom of the mountain if you're going to swim. It's cleaner, and has a stunning view of the mountains.

Easy Sunday afternoon hike

Trail closed due to fires. No re-open date determined. :-(

Nice easy trail.

Will be a great hike when there is more water! But it's not a difficult hike at all! Good hike to take a dog on!

Went in extreme drought and at end of fall. loads of leaves make the very narrow path slick and tricky in many spots but still beautiful.
