Beautiful, quick and easy.

Super pretty hike. The entire trail was covered in hard packed snow and some ice. Boots chains and poles for the win!

Went this weekend. It was amazing. 3/17/18 it was snowy still, slippery in some places. Be careful, but otherwise wonderful!

Easy and short hike up to the top, but surprised more people haven’t talked about the heights! I’ve hiked well over 30 trails in the Oregon/Washington area, and this is one of the few that actually made me nervous on my way to the top! There are guard rails, but it’s just wide open to the side of the rock as you ascend. Worth it for the views at the top!

Great walk! The gorge winds made it an epic climb up the switchbacks. Totally worth going to the top.

This trail is spectacular and is definitely worth the walk especially is it’s basically the only falls trail open right now. Definitely do it clockwise.

One of my favorite hikes. Great for beginner hikers or a quick daily walk in the woods. In the spring and summer I do this hike 3 to 4 times a week. Also going on a sunny morning it's a photographer's dream location.

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

Short easy hike. Very crowded. Amazing waterfall. In order to enjoy this hike, snow spikes or hiking boots for icy and snowy surface is required. In my opinion, snowshoes are a little bit overkill.

Beautiful but very popular expect to share the beautiful views. Trail is in good condition but still has areas that are muddy!

Great hike for young kids. My 4 year old handled it like a champ. A lot of traffic on a sunny day with the other gorge hikes still closed but worth it!!!

Really a gorgeous hike. Snow was covering the trail so leave your nikes at home and hike with good traction shoes. Spectacular view at the end of this trail!

One of the best hikes in the gorge. Uphill but easy.

A nice easy loop. Beautiful scenic views of the lake and Mt. Hood.

Beautiful hike! Wear appropriate shoes-it was pretty muddy.

You can literally drive up too or walk up too this waterfall it's so pretty!

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.

Short moderately steep but the stairs helped. May 2017. Enjoyed the views and the lush green. And the waterfall was beautiful. Wish I was in better shape for the hike back out, had to stop once to catch my breath.

Absolutely gorgeous hike. Lots of great people and friendly pups along the way. Snow was covering the trail, good shoes with adequate traction or shoe spikes would be a wise choice. Not deep enough for snowshoes.

Amazing beginner hike. Definitely will be back

Awesome views! The top is really not that great compare to the trek up the mountain! Try to go on any other day except for a weekend. This trail is highly trafficked.

Had so much fun! A few areas were a little not kid friendly with a 2 and 4 year old but we just carried them. His is an amazing hike!

Went and hiked this on our way back from Seattle WA to CA, it was great the trail takes you to the top of the waterfall then down to the base of the waterfall

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

Fun hike, not to many people were actually taking the whole loop due to slush, so the trail was pretty empty. Nice trails, great for dogs and the falls are beautiful! Moments of silence were not taken for granted.

This is such a fun hike. The falls are so breath taking!! And you can get right underneath them :-) Easy, kid and dog friendly as well. We will be back!

Beautiful waterfalls! Very slippery because of melted snow / slush! Coming back in the summer!

Super fun hike with beautiful falls - in dry weather you could wear tennis shoes. I did not go in dry weather... it is VERY slick and muddy- several people fell multiple times. Wear shoes with good traction!

Not too difficult with big reward at the top!
