Jan. 20, 2019. 23 degrees. our first time hiking to the falls. started at the nature center and crossed the suspension bridge. even tho it was really cold it was an incredible trip. the river was really flowing because all the rain we've had. can't wait to do it in the spring...

I made it to the top today and it took all the will power I had. Didn’t get the sunny view but will try sometime in the summer again when I’m in much better shape! The views came out intermittently, and I was able snag a couple fun scenes.

Great hike that is challenging but short. It has some nice views and good climb.

If you have a dog, there are a fair amount of sharp rocks on the trail and there is also steel mesh. If your dog doesn't have tough enough paws its likely they will get cut, and there are sections where the steel has rusted.

Tough hike but well worth it. Bring plenty of water.

I did my first mountain bike here this afternoon. And it was awesome. Fairly easy trail but lots of fun. I went up to the falls day picnic area and turned around which is under 5 miles. Need to yield with peds and horseback riders but everyone has food etiquette and friendly. I plan to do the trail again and go even further.

Good hike

Great for choosing your own adventure. Lots of berries during the appropriate seasons too.

Awesome hike! Did the hike to the base of the falls. It’s been raining the last few days so it was super muddy and slick but worth it. The way the rocks are makes it hard to get good footing - so I’d rate this more strenuous than moderate. Also hiked back up and did Cane Creek Falls over the suspension bridge. My husband , I and pup enjoyed the day exploring nature ! Check out Cane Creek Overlook if you’re looking for a good spot to stop and eat lunch.

This hike offer all scenery from forest to flower fields to mountains. Absolutely stunning! One of my favorites!

Kicked my butt, but it was an amazing hike with wonderful views. Did it New Years Day, parking wasn’t full even at 10am. Saw a decent number of people. We brought our 75lb Shepherd/golden mix and highly recommend booties for any dogs on the mountain, especially near the top. We put his boots on around 1.75mi up the mountain when the chain link became prevalent on the ground. Bring lots of snacks, the elevation is harder than it seems! Be careful of ice covering the path near the top. Would love to go back again.

Absolutely lives up to the hype. Great for kids and my dog. Two for one special of stunning falls at the bottom and the top and a suspension bridge for fun thrown in. Very cool hike.

It’s a really beautiful trail. Great for an easy walk with kids or dogs. I would have given 5 stars, but the gunfire really is what ruins the ambiance. Nothing against guns, but they’re just not what you’re looking to hear when you’re going for a walk in the woods (or at least we aren’t). Otherwise it’s awesome.

In terms of day hikes, this one is was tough. Bring water

hiked this in July 2018. get to the trail Head before 9am or you don't get a parking spot on summer weekends. the hike is doable for most. gorgeous views but really crowded on the weekends.

Amazing! Such a spiritual experience!!!

My favorite Oregon hike to date, and I’ve been hiking here about 15 years.

Hiked this in early December, it was beautiful and my first time up! Definitely bring lots of clothing layers and good hiking shoes, it was very slick and icy in some spots.

Best mountain in Oregon that I’ve been on.

Did the old trail up and new trail down on Friday 12/07. This past week the weather was amazing so the hike was great. Started hitting light snow about 3,400 feet which increased with elevation.
Was all packed down though some parts were a little icy. I went without spikes or poles which would have been nice but not a necessity yet. The old trail up was definitely a challenge. I made it to the mailbox in 1:50 so I was hauling. The way down on the new trail took about 2:25 as I was taking my time but could definitely be done faster. Very rewarding hike!!

Beautiful falls. Pretty easy hike, not too crowded.

Hiked this today in the later afternoon. It was lightly snowing at the top which made for a cool experience. I didn’t get to see the epic views due to the clouds/snowing but as I hiked back down it cleared out for a beautiful sunset and you could see the ocean.

Very challenging hike. There's other more beautiful hikes in the area, but the workout is worth it for this one.

There was a lot of snow on road and one map said we were at trail. We decided to park and hike the road to trailhead. 2.5 miles we finally got to trail head. It was a pretty hike in the snow even on the road. It was getting dark so we decided wouldn’t have enough time to do the hike, with walking down road with the cars that still needed to come down. Snow was deep as we got higher. We had spikes so they helped walking the road.

It was a beautiful hike in the snow even though we didn’t make to trail.

nice hike to the base of the falls,can get crowded

Night time hiking trying to break mountaineering boots in. Not a good idea I advise everyone not to try but I did it anyways. This is not my only time going up to check the mail. For as close as a fun hike it is it’s wonderful for conditioning! Old trail up and down this time. The new trail down is about the same time as the old if you do some ruining.

Awesome short hike. View from the top is amazing.

You: Bring light Ice cleats, and a camera.

Transportation: having decent ground clearance is not a must have but surely helps. I wouldn’t drive up there in a sedan, but people do it.

This one has been on my list and we couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for it (11/18/18). Hiked the new trail up and back down, I don’t think my knees could have taken the old trail from what I hear. Pretty brutal last 1/2 mike until you reach the Peak but no question, worth it all! Gorgeous views of the PNW.

We went in the middle of October the hike wasn’t to bad but the waterfall is totally worth it we’re from Missouri and we had a blast.

We did this hike on Mothers Day. We took the old trail up & new trail down..wear proper shoes for the down hill. Amazing accomplishment....hardest
one for me so far

A little busy but the view from the top was absolutely amazing! The trail was icy in several spots. Should have brought some light ice cleats but it was still doable.
