Hiked in late October. The mixed foliage was so cool. Yellows and greens everywhere. Pretty easy; you can hear traffic from 14 for the first .5-1 mile, it it does eventually dissipate into silence. Not crowded; only saw a handful of hikers. The waterfall was actually more impressive than we expected on an easy hike. Doesn’t feel super remote, but it does feel gorgeous and serene. Cool rock features at the falls. Would certainly do again, especially with novice hikers.

did the trail yesterday, just beautiful. Fine signage, great open trail, just a great little hike, and dont miss the waterfall

An amazing all around hike! Small walk right up to the base of the falls, or a small moderate 2.0 mile loop if you’re interested in hiking the whole trail. On the trail you’ll see a second waterfall and some other beautiful sights! Hiked it on 11/7/2018, and the fall colors were really popping. Loved every bit of it!

Gorgeous views! A little slippery in spots but not too bad considering it was rainy. Kinda brutal, uphill alllll the way.

Don't take Berger Rd! It's terrifying!

Great introductory hike for a newbie. Not saying it was a breeze - my legs definitely felt the up and back but due to moderate length well accessible to all with the right shoes (I had tennis sneakers which were not ideal!) Anyway this walk has now got me up for more - !

Had some steep hills, a bit slippery with the wet leaves and dirt! Gorgeous trail and views!

Didn't do the entire trail because we were on a time schedule but the waterfall is gorgeous. Highly suggest.

Perfect hike, not hard just enough and getting to the waterfall was a great experience.

Not difficult, but if you want to get better pictures you’ll do a little navigating on slippery rocks. Even then, it’s not bad. Views are spectacular, of course.

So beautiful!

Extremely steep most of the way up but the views at the top are worth it! Didn’t see anyone else on the trail and it was a beautiful clear day.

quick and easy hike, keep right at the fork to go up to the waterfall. some rocky spots but nothing challenging.

Great trail for all ages. The views are spectacular!

Nice hike, the waterfall at the end is pretty and it wasn't very crowded even with the beautiful weather today. We parked in the lot before the Bridge of the Gods, you'll need a NW Forest Pass to park here.

Was a nice hike on the PCT and easy to go further on the trail if you choose. The waterfall was nice and not too many people. Good to stop and eat lunch.

It was beautiful and refreshing standing on the back of the fall!!!

Upper section not too crowded (Friday 9/14/18 afternoon). Some road/traffic noise along lower section. Beautiful forested area. Decent elevation change with some switchbacks.

Hiked on 9/8. The upper falls loop wasn’t too crowded—but lower falls looked a lot busier. Gorgeous views all around due to a dry and sunny day. Couldn’t have asked for a better morning hike to start the day.

two waterfalls in one hike. nice!

Challenging for this beginner but well worth it. Such a breathtaking view!

had a great time walking this Trail, ended up doing the loop twice because of the incline and sheer magnitude of the view you get both at the top of the falls and lower Falls. Highly recommend

A nice, fairly undemanding hike but not a lot of visual bang.

Highly reccomend stable shoes. Took my dog on this hike and had a blast but the trail is not flat. I didn't have too much trouble but when I wasn't paying attention to my feet I rolled my ankle over a few times. Definitely my bad for wearing running shoes. Not very difficult, but I would have to say going down on the last treck was the more difficult part for me with my dog. He's still learning trail etiquette.

Very green, beautiful falls even in March.

Short but steep. Incredible views at the top and very windy. Rocky at times

Great loop hike! But it wasn’t 2 miles. More like 4.4 which was great! Rocky terrain, shoes with good soles are recommended. From the lower park, take the left hand trail at the Y. It will take you to the lower falls within about a mile. Keep going and eventually you will reach the upper falls ~2 miles. Then loop back down on the other side of the stream. Moderate only because of the terrain. The elevation gain was about 1000 ft. Great on a beautiful day. You can walk behind both falls. Please be kind though, and pack in pack out. This is a very tourist-y spot.

Meh. The trail is short and bumpy with a waterfall that is decent, but not great relative to the surrounding area.
