It was very steep. To get to the top you literally go straight up. Be careful when muddy. It was a bit difficult to find the trail. There are many different trails! Use the map!! Worth it getting to the top! Wonderful very.

Quite the calf burner, but made for an incredible first time hike. The views are worth the grind up to the top. Couldn't imagine walking this during snowfall or heavy rain due to downed trees in parts and narrower paths. All in all a nice gem of a hike.

As someone who isn’t from here, I was bummed that nobody mentioned the lake gets drained in the winter so it’s mostly dirt there currently, but it was a great hike nonetheless and the view of Mt Jefferson is incredible. No snow, and saw families with small children and kids on the way out and back. Took my 12 year old dog on this and she got tired from the incline on the way up but was fine after we hung out at the top for about 10 minutes and we were able to get back to our car in half the time it took to get up the mountain. Definitely would do again when it’s warmer out and the lake is full

Amazing view at top! Beautiful all the way up.

Beautiful hike with an amazing view, especially on a clear day. I would highly recommend this hike.

My favorite waterfall in Oregon. it's truly magical. The only downfall is the hike being so short.

Did today with friends and kids. Great hike. Beautiful from the top!

This is a perfect hike for people who’d like to see Eugene. There are many points to stop and admire the scenery of what it means to be in Northwestern Oregon. I went December 27 and I was dressed in joggers and had a light jacket and windbreaker in the early afternoon and was comfortable. There are heaps of steps at the tail end of the hike but worth the view of all of Eugene and then some. Being raised in Eugene this is the first place I recommend if you plan on hiking anywhere in the Eugene area.

Beautiful, foggy day. Well maintained but not overly so.

Love this trail so much! I've hiked it 3 times thus far. It is definitely a good work out and has beautiful forest views. Each time I've hiked it I didn't run across many people. If you hike to the end there is a pretty little waterfall. To get down below to it, you need to climb downhill off the path (it's steep). It's worth it!

This is a wonderful leisurely stroll in the woods close to town if you need some fresh air, but you don't have time to go far. My wife and I went for a quick hike today, and even with some drizzle and muddy conditions, it was a pleasant walk.

Beautiful trail with awesome view at the top. Perfect to do with dogs, lightly trafficked, just a couple of people on it. Easy to find!

Easy to find, clear trail, beautiful view. Hiked in winter and snow coverage was not foreboding.

Omg! So utterly beautiful! Worth every step through the muddy trail!

Easy trail. Beautiful falls!!! It started dumping snow on the way out. Roads were still ok, but would suggest a car with 4WD or chains.

Epic trail. Period

Baldy is nice for what it is. A short and sweet hike. Great for kids because it’s not too long and pretty easy. I live close by so me and my boyfriend take our son all the time. I carry my toddler in our Osprey pack on my back sometimes and it’s a nice workout. They have several ways up. We usually just go up the main way but the back way is longer. Views at top are really pretty.

Easy and beautiful walk down- challenging uphill hike back. And agree with the google maps review- DO NOT use it I got many new and unwanted scratches on my truck from the narrow road it took us on. It also got very foggy at about 3pm and made it hard to see on the drive out. The roads are mostly single lane so drive carefully.
If you have bad knees or are physically challenged in any way take some hiking poles and plenty of water.

It’s ok. Pretty view. Really short. Would rather hike Spencer’s.

One of the best hikes within 30 mins of Eugene in a forest. Not too difficult or crowded. also many options to extend hike.

Warning: Follow directions in the “getting there” description in the AllTrails app. Google maps MAY send you toward an unmaintained and unpassable road in snow season. Unfortunately, that isn’t immediately clear until you’re a couple miles up it. Turning around at most places may not be safe, either. I ended up ditching my 4x4 and hiking THAT road about 5 miles up. Another group in an Explorer made it much farther up the road to about 2 miles from the trailhead using chains but they had to turn back due to snow. Eventually, the tire tracks pretty much disappear in the snow. You can see others tried and turned back. By the time I was nearing the trailhead on foot it was about an hour or so from dark, so I turned around. Looking at Google maps, it appears that the road you DON’T want to be on (at least in a vehicle once the snow hits) is Champion Creek Road.

However, if you want to tack about 12 miles round trip to this hike, this is a fun way to access it on foot. Just leave early and take snowshoes for the last few miles in winter. You would park at the Upper Trestle Creek Falls trailhead, then hike all the way up Champion Creek Road. There is a sign at the bottom saying it is not maintained. I kind of enjoyed it even though I didn’t make it to where I was headed.

Great trail! Super good for a first hike back into the swing of things. Beautiful view at the top.

Beautiful hike! One of my favorite hikes to do!

Great natural hike! Seen no other people! Dogs loved it!

great view at the top.

Brought tire chains in Dec this time, but never used them. Still some snow on the road. we hiked with four year olds and a dog and it was great. it is an easy trail to the falls, but difficult to climb up to the falls, which is optional. Definitely recommended. Paired with spirit falls was a 5-6 hour round trip from eugene for us.

Beautiful hike but definitely not as easy as some say, it took me about a hour to get to the top, or it felt like it. It was also a lot harder because my almost 30 lb 2 year old decided she was done walking maybe .1 mile in
