Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

My all time favorite hike. But it has gotten so crowded in recent years. I visited here just weeks before the fire closed it in 2017.

Very sad. But can’t wait for it to reopen.

Fantastic hike, gorgeous in every way, waterfalls, lush greenery, flowers, mushrooms, moss, all that's missing are the little fairies :) Took us about 5-6 hrs, just what we needed.

Its closed and fenced, but you can still see the waterfall

Miss this place

my very first trail in Oregon

This is my favorite trail!

I can’t wait for this trail to open again!

When we went, there were a lot of people there so it was impossible to get a photo without others in them. Very beautiful though

Get up there early or you'll feel like your on the I-5 during rush hour... Otherwise it's a pretty decent view from the top which, after so many times I try not to take for granted.

The trail was closed due for safety concerns so we weren’t able to go past the gift shop. Hopefully it opens again soon but it wasn’t worth the drive to see the falls through a chained gate at the bottom of the trail.

quick and easy trail that was extremely crowded when I went. parking was also difficult.

Beautiful hike

Hiked this trail on July 2017. Unfortunately we could not get to the tunnel falls trail due to the fires. Anyways it didnt matter since the trail is so beautiful and there is so much to see. We stopped and had lunch on a little cave by the punch bowel falls and it was magic. The path does get narrow, sometimes wet. Be mindful that you will walk alongside of a cliff but it is doable. A tree branch will definitely help.

Main viewpoint is closed due to fire damage

This is the easiest and maybe one of the most beautiful trails in the gorge. Hoping it opens back up soon ❤️

Oregon is such a beautiful state. Amazing hike and also easy. We even had dinner near the falls at a little restraunt from the bottom of the hike. So gorgeous and the scenery was worth seeing. recommended for all people!

One of my favorite ever hikes- So sad it’s closed! Feels like another world being surrounded by huge amounts of moss and greens while in a valley between the rock. Ugh. Absolutely love it. The falls at the end are worth visiting a thousand times over.

This hike is mostly flat making it “easy”, but visit in winter and be prepared for an adventure. It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. Imagine a very thin cliff trail of ice chips with icicles falling as you hike and cling to the side of the wall. It’s beautiful! Like Fern Gully. There were times I thought we might die, but only because of the heavy ice.

The main viewpoint doesn’t require any work at all, but beyond that the trail becomes steep, but the view is worth it. The trail was relatively quick as well, and I was able to go to a few others.

My sister brought me here the day the fire started. Was really beautiful and popular as well. So glad I got to see this then.

I hiked this trail in August of 2016 and it takes the cake for all the other trails I’ve hiked. It’s 18 miles round trip and will 100 percent test your endurance. But if you can tough it out, it will be well worth the views. Sadly I believe part of if not the whole trail is closed due to a fire started by some kids in September. The trail was a breath taker. Literally and figuratively.

Long but steady hike. Nothing too steep on this hike but it is all uphill. Take your time on this fairytale trail :)

Beautiful views and nicely designed trails make this one of my favorite trail runs of this year. I did this counter clockwise which I recommend because the initial climb features tight switchbacks which I personally prefer to ascend. Careful on the descent as you get to Multnomah Falls as foot traffic is heavy there

Closed. You cannot get into the park. It's blocked off by cones because of the fire. I tried to sneak in but was stopped by the park patrol. He said it isn't open until March.

There is not enough words to describe how amazing this hike is!! The scenery, waterfalls, creeks and views are absolutely breathtaking! We hiked about 8 miles the first day and found an beautiful little place to camp, settled in and then hiked a few more miles up and back before settling in for the night. Camp spot was awesome!! Right next the running creek! Headed out the next morning..lots of weekend traffic unfortunately....Stopped at Punch Bowl to relax and take it all in!!
Hiked about 18 miles round trip!!!
Loved every bit of it!!

This trail is closed until 2018 per USFA due to Eagle Creek Fire

Same complaints that I have with Oneonta Gorge. Waterfalls are beautiful, and the place is a real treat during the winter months. During spring and summer there are too many awful people.

Nice easy trail with great views!

It’s best to be done mid week when the crowd is thinner.
