BE AWARE ICY TRAIL!! Wanted to hike larch mountain trail on 12/8/18, but signs at multnomah said it was closed from here, then I attempted to hike to the top of the falls, which I've never done and again the trail was way too icy... I think it was at switchback 2 or 3 out of 11 long switchbacks that I gave up, with every step even with my trekking pole I was slipping with each step. I'll have to try another time. There was also freezing rain when I was here.

Great feeling to finish this - I am in shape and it was hard great workout and beautiful views

Breathtaking trail!

Great sunrise spot looking out to sea and back over Honolulu. Was really busy even at sunrise with at least 50 people or more. Did this walk on Monday 10th December. Car entry is $5 and if on foot is $1 per person. Definitely worth the price for the views. It toke us 15 minutes to get to the top with no stops.

great trail to challenge your leg strengths. I am a beginner hiker and it was a bit hard. it was worth to see the view on top!

Relatively easy because it is well paved. Entirely uphill. Very crowded with two way traffic. The biggest issue is that the crowds are mostly tourists who all have different ideas about what side of the trail to be on, how close to be, how much of the trail is ok to fan out on, and how fast to go. There is a stretch of the trail that goes through a cave, which, if you’re the kind of person who gets claustrophobic in elevators, might be a little uncomfortable. Lots of stairs and the viewing platform is very narrow and crowded. View at the top is totally worth it!

Ew.

You’ll enjoy this hike if you like hikes that are completely overcrowded, not in nature, behind peoples houses, stepping over hundreds of dog shits that didnt get picked up, annoying / crying kids, no elevation gain, people playing music from their phones and mini speakers, watching people slowly struggle over a creek 2 inches deep holding their babies or small dogs lol, etc.

Avoid at all costs

Crowded and touristy, but still a classic. I like to go in the late afternoon when most of the tours are gone.

Didn’t make the loop. They were doing a controlled burn so we doubled back. Ended up walking about 10 km. At the end (also the beginning) we went for a swim in the Wekiwa Springs. Gin clear water.

started on the Tennessee side today. the trek down is marked really well until you reach Alabama. be aware that the trail markers change.

Even though this hike is a must see for Honolulu/Oahu it's not much of a "hike" good elevation and workout with a view, that's it.

* WAY too touristy. Lots of folks who have no business going up will be there. No trail etiquette in the slightest
* Paved all the way up. Badly at that. Times were you will trip and fall
* If you're a hiker, take the "hard" route when it comes up. Stairs to get the blood flowing.
* Views are great. Crowded. Tourist spot in tight quarters.

pretty views and great trail for beginner to intermediate hikers

Loved coming here! so beautiful! a trip with remembering for a long time! it was a bit chilly when I went there, but I had a warm jacket on, so that took care of it.... make sure to bundle up when going on a cold day. it was packed, but we found some parking! so picturesque! a must go. it's practically nothing to go up to the bridge, but still wear good shoes. Have fun!

Saw more people than I would have liked, but the views were amazing. Go all the way to Myrtle Point. If icy, crampons are worth carrying.

Hiked on a good weather weather Saturday and the trail was crowded. But the views and terrain were worth it. Was harder than I expected. A lot of elevation gain in 3 miles.

Being from Texas and mostly hiking flat terrain, this trail was all up hill and it was great. Not only is it a historical Civil War trail but it is challenging and beautiful!

way to over crowned its like the pumpkin spice latte of hiking.

on Multnomah Falls Trail

Nice easy walk and a beautiful waterfall! Was pretty busy there even on a weekday in late November. Definitely recommend going early to miss the crowds

Love this trail. A good steady incline up, beautiful buttery downhill to a nice creek flow off of the falls. Beautiful in winter, can’t wait to head back in the spring.

It is an easy hike, however, it has a narrow path at some points of the hike and there are points where there is oncoming traffic (due to it being heavily crowded) and u cannot pass the person in front of you. Took about 20 minutes to reach the "summit". The whole path is paved. Entrance Fee- Not sure about the Parking fee, but I hiked up to the gate it self and it was a dollar. On Saturdays, if you go in the AM for the hike, you can enjoy KCC famers market right around the corner.
The stairs (towards the last part of the hike to reach up top) in the pictures are optional, but more fun. There is an alternate and an easier path as well. Definitely worth the view if you are visiting HI for the first time such as in my case.

Love this trail. Our family has been up and down a couple of times and will be back. Views are great and trail is difficult enough to make it a great half day climb.

Hiked this trail with my grandson. The views are beyond spectacular

Over crowded trail.

Most beautiful trail in the park. If I could only do one this would be it for sure.

Was easy and fun hike. It’s pretty muddy right now when you get to the overlook from the top of the falls. My dog loved this hike and the switch backs tired him out.

I rate it low because despite the fantastic view up top, the trail itself it just one long paved route out in the open with nothing much to look at inside of the crater. After doing it I can’t say the view was worth the effort.

Go early to avoid the crowds! This was a great solo hike on a Sunday morning. I took a beat at the waterfall to do some writing, which was lovely until a chubby kid took his shirt off, started yell-singing the milkshake song and then jumped in the water. Which he somehow didn’t expect to be cold. You can try to get out of LA, but you’ll never truly escape :)

Great short hike with two amazing caves and two great waterfalls. Can’t beat it for a short easy hike!

Do the hike several times a month.
Great hike,magnificent view from the rock face.
One of my favorite hikes.
