Very pretty hike. will do it again.

Gorgeous but be very careful. We found bear scat today! Google maps has not been updated. there is a log that fell, so the road doesn't even look like a road and is closed. the falls are amazing.

The only reason I gave it four stars was due to getting to the trail head. If you love to rough up your vehicle then by all means travel the last 5 miles up there early spring with pot holes the size of a car. BUT! Totally worth it. The pools and streams where beautiful and still recommend the hike

Great hike! Went last year, and plan on going again soon. Good hike to take kids, we even took one of those big wheeled child stroller’s. Much is a road. Ppl in the town are pretty friendly and it’s interesting to see how their energy set up runs.

Great city trail in Portland’s acclaimed Forest Park. The lower trail follows a stream. The upper trail leads to a lovely view of the city and Mt. Hood beyond from the gardens of the elegant Pittock Mansion. Water bowl for doggies and the ticket office for the indoor tour of Pittock.

Pretty easy hike, great little stream. when you take the turn up to Pittock Mansion be prepared for the incline. I've hiked this trail two times now. The first time I wasn't in the best shape so it was a nice burn. The second time I was in better shape so it wasn't as bad, but I powered up it and was out of breath by the time I got to the top because I was hiking up pretty quickly.

Great place one of the best on the coast. You can take the very easy level hike or a nice big crazy one.
The view is amazing.

What a great hike! This trail was everything we had hoped for. We had a beautiful sunny day today. A little muddy especially for the first 1.5 mile or so, but well worth the mud and the effort! Not too easy, but not too hard, and the views once you get to the meadow are amazing! It was about 5.5 miles from the parking lot to the top and it’s uphill most of the way there. I highly recommend this trail, you won’t be disappointed! Wear hiking boots if you have them.

trails are not marked very well but, still a fun easy hike

I thought this was a great hike! So fun for the puppers and I. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful.

The water here is the prettiest blue to turquoise.

The view is incredible the way to the view not so much!

Couldn’t get my sportwagen through the snow today unfortunately but looks like a beautiful area! Going to try again in a month or so

If you only have time for one hike in PDX, do Upper Mcleay to Pittock mansion and pack a lunch for when you get to the top.

We went in early January and it was sunny and no wind! The trail was a little muddy here and there, probably due to recent rains, but overall was easy to hike. The views are incredible! Kind of a bummer that you have to walk alongside the road for the first stretch of the trail, due to the trailhead being a short distance from the parking lot. Great hike though, will continue to make this trip!

It was pretty muddy but WELL worth the hike! It’s a quick trip up and you descend even quicker. My family, including a 5 year old knocked this out in about 90 minutes total. Oh, and the view is spectacular! We all loved it.

Amazing views! Very muddy is right. It was SO DANG COLD the day we went, there was still a nice dusting of snow up there! The elk were wayyyy on the side of the hill so you could only see them from far away. Still SO amazing. Need to come back and do Hart's Cove when it's available. Decent elevation climb but a few sets of kids came FLYING by so they were having no problems haha.

Both times I've gone, it's been too foggy to see anything. Great trail though, lots of snow right now!

This is a great area but I'm yet to find the second falls. The trails are poorly marked. I would recommend tracking your mileage or recording your trail to keep on track.

Such a great hike! So many beautiful pools to stop at. Also a good place to go backpacking. I’ve been twice and plan on going again later this spring.

Always a beautiful hike! One of our favorites

Solid winter hike, not too busy. Great swimming in the summer. Beautiful falls year round.

This was a great afternoon winter hike. One thing to keep in mind for winter hikes is that trees may have fallen and yet to be cleared. We had a few tree trunks to cross over that would change the difficulty to Moderate.

Another note is to make sure to make sure to wear shoes with traction. We saw people on the trail in rain shoes, aka slickers. This trail has several sections of ascending and descending areas that can be muddy and slippery.

I would also recommend going on to Green Peak Falls after seeing Alsea Falls. There is a $3.00 day use fee payable at the box. Take correct change. None provided.

Just the hike I was looking for, scenery, wildlife and a good workout. Amazing views that I could not stop looking at! Yes, a little muddy, but not bad.

Love this hike so much!

Awesome Sunday hike. Definitely muddy, but not nearly the worst mud trail I’ve experienced at the coast. Great views, lots of amazing places to have a rest and a snack. Wonderful mix of views, wooded areas, and wide open spaces.

Lots of steep steps and mud at the start but worth it.
