its a wonderful place and the hike is a good way to get into hiking. only reason why we don't give it a 5 is because the trail to the bottom of trail up to the water fall is close. but that's it

View of Hood is amazing, lots of wild flowers blooming. Look out for poison oak and rattle snakes

You have to pay for parking and the trail is pretty busy. In some spots I had to wait 15 min for people to get through funnels in the trail or climb over certain rocks. BRING A LIGHT SOURCE.

This is a great forested trail with a few views of the ocean. Can get muddy and slick with rain but remains one of my all time favorite hikes.

Everything about this hike was amazing. A bit busy for my taste but how can you resist. The falls were breathtaking!! Will highly recommend to everyone who I can.

View of Mt. Hood on a clear day is hard to beat

The hike was beautiful. I am a beginner with hiking and this was my 2nd hike. It was definitely a little harder than I expected but that’s mostly because of the snow. We had to hike to the trailhead through the snow which meant falling a bit. However, it was totally worth the views!

So beautiful! Very much worth the rough drive in.

This trail is very well-maintained. I went on a sunny but chilly Saturday morning and there were very few people on the trail. I ran and walked and it took about 2 hours to make a big loop.

Fun little hike, rain was coming down hard and made the trails muddy, but still a worthwhile trail, and the camping shelters kept us warm and dry. Don't miss the WWII bunkers!

This hike can be easy or difficult in the climb, we only hiked a couple miles last summer. Hiked it with 3 kids; 15, 9 and an baby in a pack.

Was very fun, VERY easy. I only gave it 3 because I probably wouldn’t go all the way there to do it again. Pretty damp, wear boots for the water puddles and such. Great little trip with friends. Bring a bright headlamp and gloves! Enjoy.

Awesome place to go in winter and also in spring when it is slightly less taxing. Go there enough prepared to walk in snow for good two miles if you are going in winter or early spring. The hike experience is wonderful and worth it!

easy, little muddy today

Perfect Sunday hike, a light rain and some muddy spots. But it is all well worth it when you get to the falls. Absolutely breathtaking! !

Easy, beginner hike but you’ve got to start somewhere.

Great views, easy hike, beautiful roaring waterfall

If you hike the loop, eventually the trail splits. Someone has placed logs across the trail you should NOT take.

Nice snowshoe walk at the end of the season. Sun was coming through. Some walked without snowshoes but they were struggling a little.

Amazing trail and beautiful as well! Very icy so you have to be careful but definitely worth it.

Could not get to trailhead, roads are still covered in 5+ ft of snow above 3000'

Looking forward to visiting again in after June.

This is legitimately the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen. We went up here yesterday and it was such a lovely day and it was early enough in the season that it wasn't near as crowded as the other time I came here last summer, which was perfect. Highly recommend this to everyone!!!

Really unique and wonderful trail! Definitely want a good flashlight, lots of really beautiful rock to see.

Great first hike of the year. Dog friendly. Not too muddy when wet. A bit of snow remaining.

We hit this on the way back from the Cape Lookout hike. It is super short, more of a stroll than a hike. The trail is in great shape and people of all abilities can walk it safely. The falls at the end were actually way more impressive than I was expecting. The info says that it is the tallest waterfall in the Cascades and I'd believe it. The trail is closed a bit before the falls, it looks like logs are blocking the path, but you have a pretty full view of the whole falls.

Unlike anything I’ve ever done... make sure if you do the lower trail you are prepared to do a lot of climbing!
