I really love hiking this Trail. It is rated moderate, but I think it is fairly easy. The view at the top is well worth the hike!!!!!

I was in town for the Ducks/UCLA game on November 3. It was sort of a homecoming- I was a law student at UO in the late ‘80, and remember being introduced to hiking the many beautiful trails around Eugene. I really looked forward to seeing some old friends and I promised I must return to some of these hiking trails on this trip. As was expected, there was an off-and-on gentle drizzle which didn’t seem to bother my fellow hikers on this crisp late Saturday morning. The hike was moderately strenuous but very worth it as the views of the Willamette Valley from the summit was a deserved treat. I wished I had more time to hike than the hour I spent on the trail since I had to head back into town for the game. I look forward to another trip to Eugene and hopefully spend more enjoyable time hiking its beautiful trials. By the way,the Ducks won.

very good place! The stairs were a lot for me but made it through

Great little hike!! With all the reviews I was wondering what this hike would entail. It was an easy hike, but so beautiful with old growth, lovely Creeks and waterfalls!

Pretty easy to navigate, but I could see how one could get confused on the trail. Was weary to sit or stand on the logs with the previous reviews about the ground wasps. My daughter and I had the hike all to ourselves with the exception of a quite photographer.

Very pretty this time of year. Trail isn’t well marked in places but not difficult to navigate.

Finally did this hike on Oct 21. Clear, sunny day. The hike up was moderately challenging with nice views to the west, including Spencer Butte and parts of Eugene. Lots of different trails with a gorgeous hilltop view at the summit. Not quite 360 views but close. Could be a great spot for snacking and relaxing while taking in the views. Took the longer southern trail down and it was rocky, steep, and, at times, unsure footing due to steepness and loose rocks and slight over growth. But that made the hike even more interesting. Definitely will do this hike again this coming spring and summer seasons

As a long time Salem resident, I am jealous that Eugene has this and Spencer Butte. Wondering why Salem doesn’t have something like this for a hilltop hike.

I love this hike. It’s fairly easy until about the last stretch there’s a lot of stairs but the view is rewarding. It doesn’t take to long. Looks beautiful during the day or night! I’ve done this hike about 10 times and counting.

So gorgeous in the fall!

Beautiful hike but didn't realize the number of stairs involved. Expected a few but those of us plus 70's with hip and knee issues had to take the stairs and stone steps slow and easy. The heighth of the stone stairs varied greatly. We also found that a few areas we're beginning to erode away, making some areas a little difficult. But with all that said, it was one of the best hikes we have ever taken.

Absolutely beautiful. Went in October and had the trail to ourselves. Took four kids with us and they did great. However, it was indeed poorly marked. I wish I had read the reviews and learned that the trail continued past the campground. We thought it just faded away there and turned to head back.

Amazing place

By far one of the best places to if you are new to Eugene or just here for a visit. I have used it to drop a few pounds (ok like 40)! A few different starting points and awesome views.

Awesome hike, forest is green and luscious. Hike was good, and weather was perfect. no rain, mud or snow.(even had first time hikers with us and everyone made it up and down) fall was an incredible sight. 100% must see. Falls flowing. We saw folks with dogs, children and bikes.

Good little trail if you wanna get in some quick exercise. The sunset is glamorous from the top. A little busy, but manageable during the week. I would do it again and maybe even attempt running a little.

Beautiful area, very short hike

Would consider this an easy hike. Short and sweet!

great trail for kids and dogs

Definitely steep but worth it! Be prepared for stone stairs at the top. I’m more out of shape so it took me a few rests any my trekking poles. Well maintained and a great Saturday activity.

Amazing views! Difficult trail is a lot of fun and has great scenery, easy trail has nice flat surfaces and plenty of stairs.

My boyfriend and I did this trail a month ago and it was a simple trail till you got trying trail to get down to the pool. My boyfriend and I had a blast finding it but is difficult to find. I would highly recommend this pool it’s so beautiful and so worth the hike.

Pretty area. Easy hiking!

Hiked Sept 8th. Longer than expected drive, but wasn't bad. Falls were low this time of year, but still had enough water to be pretty. Lots of families out with small children at both falls. Probably won't have this trail to yourself, but worth the trek. Was a bit more up & down than I expected, so was more sweaty than I thought I'd be, so that was a bonus as I was expecting super easy, which it still was. Green Peak trail branched off of what looks like a campsite, off of a gravel road, so just look for that. We first thought it was a pretty worn trail up a hill, but that's not it, keep going to that site & the trail is off the back of the site. Good hike for a short hike.

Great loop!

little effort for large reward. the walk is easy, a few uneven rocky sections but nothing bad and the pool is awesome. started early and was nice and quiet but got busy on the way out.

Easy, scenic hike with a massive payoff at the end.

This is a cute hike with lots to see at the beginning of the trail. The trail up follows the river at your right then you make your way up a rocky path to the top. Do yourself a favor and make a conscious effort to avoid stepping on the jagged rocks on your way up the path.

I wish that I had a bit more time to make my way down to the pool, next time for sure. That blue in the pool is just impressive. This is a must see.

Nice easy going hike in and out, could not believe how gorgeous the water was! I’ve been talking about going to see this wonder for a couple of years and was finally able to see what the hubbub was about. Well worth the effort to get to the pool and experience how truly cold that water is. Loved It!

Hike itself was really easy and boring, but the scenery is spectacular.

Beautiful easy hike !
