Easy hike with some beautiful views

Nice, shorter hike with some falls included! I will say that it’s rated on here as easy, but I did not find that to be the case. The trailhead sign even says that it’s “More difficult”. Plenty of uphill climbs on the way in. Totally worth it though! Went on a Sunday and didn’t run into anyone on the trail.

It was so cool. There was a great place to swim!

I loved this trail! It was pretty easy hike and the waterfall at the end was spectacular! We had the trail to ourselves.

great falls...easy to get to and some info on local plants along the way.

great falls. easy beautiful hike!

Hidden gem. There was no one there for the 2+ hours I was there and it was incredibly relaxing. Not a difficult hike at all.

Beautiful place, saw no one the two hours I was there.

Very easy trail and is well maintained. Was able to walk through without feeling a need to stop. Seemed difficult for people with dogs because of the amount of people on labor day. Lots of poison oak the whole way as well. The waterfall is very relaxing and pretty.

I really enjoyed this trial. It is really easy and short. It looks completely dry in the way up to the falls, but once you get there, you’ll see that there is plenty of water, enough to enjoy the view. Make sure to bring some dry clothes because the two pools, upper and lower, look so attractive! I didn’t bring it and it was a shame. The place wasn’t crowded, just four people beside us.

My wife and our 5 kids, ages 16-2 1/2 to Yakso Falls in August 2018. As others have said, it is a long drive, but I think it was worth it as there is a campground with a day use area and another set of falls right next door. The hike was easy for everyone including our 2 year old daughter. The falls were not gushing, but still had plenty of water coming down and the pool at the bottom was crystal clear. Two of us jumped in and swam in the pool, which was freezing cold! Overall, a very nice hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. 4 Stars only because the drive up the gravel road is on the long side.

My favorite down 138. There's something about these falls that just make me so happy every time I see it. Easy trail. I like to bring a lunch and eat it at the falls.

I love this trail if I'm looking for a quick, easy walk to a pretty falls. Depending on when you go it can either be busy or very quiet. The mosquitos can get bad in the summer near the falls, but overall one of my favorites.

Easy and Fun hike with kids and dogs. Trail follows water most of the time. Beautiful cave/crack in rocks that the kids loved. Easily completed this and Susan Creek Falls before nap time with 2 year old in backpack and 4 year old hiking. Busy during summer and weekends.

Easy hike and wheelchair/stroller accessible. My 4 year old had fun running ahead and reading the info signs along the trail. Rare to have the waterfalls alone during the summer & weekends.


We easily completed this trail and Falls Creek Falls in one day without complaints from the kids.

Love this hike. Short enough you can enjoy other hikes in the area.

An easy out and back hike. Great falls to cool off under.

Easy hike. Beautiful drive if you are entertaining an out of town family.

My first trip to visit family in Oregon I was able to come see the falls. From Kentucky we hike all the time and this was a nice hike for our kids. Water was cold but that didn't stop them from getting in. Hope to visit again one day.

Is the water shallow enough to walk up under the falling water? How deep is it? The first time I went I had socks, cotton clothing, wallet, etc. This time I'm going prepared to swim! This is so pretty, I'm bringing several friends this Saturday.

Absolutely love this trail. I take anyone that comes and visits me from out of town to this spot. By far one of my top 5 favs so far on the north umpqua.

Sooooo pretty! Even ground, well maintained path.

Beautiful easy trail, very well maintained, included several educational signs about some of the plant life, easy access, I would recommend.

wonderful well maintained, gentle trail leading to the falls. We will be coming back here in the summer!

Beautiful walk, clean trail, and stunning waterfall at the end!

Perfect hike for young kids. my 3 year old grandson walked it and had fun.

Sooo pretty!! Easy hike, fun, well maintained.. a must!!

This is a well maintained and beautiful trail. The path is wide and there are placards identifying plant life along the trail. It’s an easy hike (myself age 44, my husband age 46, and my parents in their 70’s) easily walked the trail without getting out of breath. There’s an outhouse and a trash can at the trailhead and the parking lot has space for at least 7 cars. We didn’t see anyone on the trail until we headed back towards the car. The waterfall is beautiful. I highly recommend this hike.

Hiked this with my mom on Mother’s Day. Great for kids and old people. Very pretty wild flowers along the way. It was great seeing families out as well. Got lucky and got a parking spot as someone was leaving.
