Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Went on a Cold Sunday morning hike. We took the Kopetski trail loop and came around the back side of jawbone flats. No worries you end up on the same trail you start on. We started our hike at 11 AM and got done at 2:15 PM. We only saw two other groups of hikers until we started to head back, then it was a bit more crowded, but no problem as it’s not nearly as bad as the summer time. Dress warm/layers as you are hiking in a canyon that gets very little sunlight and it’s cold until you warm up from hiking. We stopped for a small lunch at jawbone flats and had to layer back up before we got going again. Love this place. BRING CASH OR CHECK for parking. And if you can spare it, the town takes donations too, and once you see how pristine they help keep the town and trails you’ll want to donate. Great hike for all ages and skills but the Kopetski Loop is a little more rugged and step, would not recommend for little ones or people with old knees. Enjoy.

One of the most beautiful hikes in Oregon. Jawbone Flats is an incredible site to see.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

Starts out with close shrubbery, but opens up quite quickly to a beautiful forest. Moves on to some rocky outcroppings, to cedar forest, and back. So peaceful and quiet. Elevation change is pretty gradual. Some muddy and areas but nothing terrible.

Beautiful beautiful hike!

Great mix of hills and level areas. Muddy, slick, and narrow in quite a few areas but a good hike overall.

Large parking lot that sometimes fills up. Very popular for good reason, great hike!!! Unless you go early (sunrise) or late ( sunset) there is a crowd. One of the best hikes in Shawnee and a “ must do”

Hiking this trail in the winter is the way to go if you want to skip the crowds. It was the perfect little hike for a winter day.

An overlooked gem. This trail offers some spectacular views and opportunities to explore off the trail.

Great winter hike !!

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.

This trail needs some maintenance. There are 20-25 fallen trees that are down on the trail. For someone day hiking this is not an issue but there are camping sites along it which requires more gear and larger packs.

It’s one of the best hikes that I have done here in us.... this time of year around with the overcast, the forest for green and live and serene and beautiful... waterfalls were amazing and walk behind certain waterfalls makes you forget where you are

Didn’t plan on doing at 7 miles. But it was a beautiful loop!! Went through the old mining areas which was cool. Not many swimming spots.

Muddy but an awesome trail. There really isn’t a view at the ‘outlook’ but a cool tree is over halfway with iron spikes to climb up!

I hiked the loop years ago with my husband. I'd suggest to start counterclockwise if you only want to see Mantle Rock and have no interest in a long hike. It's a beautiful hike, though, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Last December, I took my youngest daughter and my best friend for a girls day. We took the counterclockwise route and enjoyed time at Mantle Rock without the exhausting hike.

Have hiked this one multiple times, not crowded on weekdays or in the mornings. Would recommend taking two cars and parking one at the north parking lot and then starting at the South Falls lot and doing the loop that way. Parking is $5 or a state parks pass.
If hiking in the winter, the trail near and around the South Fall can be complete ice

Easy, and gorgeous

Beautiful hike with awesome rock formations. We hiked this trail on a rainy day and the water sheds off the trail well. The trail is easy unless you want to venture into the rock formations which provide ample opportunity for climbing.

The hike is a must! Each waterfall is amazing! Easy hike

Came here on 12/7/18 roads were icy on the route alltrails takes you on Google maps. Dirt road coming in seemed a lot worse (pit hole riddled) than leaving. There are two vaulted toilet stalls here and they were clean. You can rent cabins at jawbone flats. If you want to do the loop I would make a right at the trailhead for the pools when you first come across the bridge it will be easier to follow if you don't have a preloaded map. This place is a must see the road is easy and opal pools trail is moderate to hard. This trail is 9.9 miles and we finished it in 5.5hrs. In jawbone flats the bathroom is closed for the winter. You can rent cabins in jawbone flats and if you are handicap, you can drive in if you are renting a cabin. Cabin prices are fairly expensive over $100. Jawbone flats is privately owned and surrounded by national forrest. You need a northwest forrest pass to park here or an American the beautiful or day pass. I believe $5/visit/day. We were the first ones on the trail and when we left there were 3 or 4 other cars in the lot on a Friday. There is ice on the trail this time of year in the early mornings so use caution. No drinkable water here if you are doing a day trip here, so make sure you bring plenty of water or have a filtration system. There are people that live here all year long. we saw 3 hikers and 3 dogs on this trail 2 dogs were not leashed up.

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

The parking fee is 5 dollars now, but still worth it!

it was an amazing hike. fell down coming out of the cave.

Trail isn't too tough to get to super cool and unique scenery and views on the way to the cave.

Beautiful place to explore. took my son today and seen some awesome rock formations. Nice little trail and was very easy to find

Boca Cave is spectacular. When you get close to the top of Triangulation Peak, the trail splits. Right up to the summit and left to the cave. Path descends on rocky ground to cave but is doable. Rocky, wet scramble into cave. Don’t miss the framed view of Jefferson.

Great hike! I didn't do the entire loop though. I took the Canyon Trail and cut across on the Winter Trail and then took the Rim Trail back. (to do the 7 mile loop, you do the Canyon and Rim trails). The way I did it was a 5 mile loop and I saw 8 of the 10 waterfalls. So even if you cut it short, you'll still see them!

I went in November and the fog hung in the air even into the afternoon, making for awesome pictures and a more somber/peaceful experience. Go on a weekday to avoid crowds, and start in the morning if you can. In the fall, definitely bring warm clothes and hats, mittens, etc!

The trail is rated as moderate, but with the slight elevation gain (other online sources say only 800 feet), I'd rate it as easy. There are steep sections, especially one place going down to Lower South Falls, but there are stairs and handrails here.

Parking is $2.00 for an all day pass. Totally worth it!

I loved this hike and recommend it to families with slightly older kids. As well as anyone who likes to hike but isn't looking to overexert themselves.
