so gorgeous! 360 views, wild flowers, cool rock formations...the last bit is steep but worth it

Beautiful! Waterfall and bridge create an ideal backdrop for a hike. We took our 1 1/2 year old and he was able to navigate the trail just fine. Totally family and pet friendly! Great way to spend the day!

on Abiqua Falls Trail

Getting to trail not very easy. End part of road is gravel and rock. Parts of the road is only wide enough for one car! A cool figure is the going down and up with the help of ropes tied to trees. Once down, very rocky trail to waterfall. Could bring water shoes and wade through freezing river! Awsome waterfall!

The waterfall was very difficult to find unless you use the provided map on this app. The off-roading was amazing but not suitable for every car. It is a very bumpy ride. The trail that leads to the waterfall is also tricky to find however the map makes it easy so do not attempt this trail without the map. There is no service so make sure to download the map before hand. The trail is not an easy trail!!! The waterfall was one of the most beautiful waterfalls I haver ever seen. The trail has to be hiked and can not be driven to so make sure to bring water and proper shoes. 100% recommend to anyone.

Went last year in a long overdue rating. Definitely go if it opens again!

Awesome hike! Pretty steep at some points, but stunning views. Tons of bugs at the very top, but there are places near the top to enjoy the views that are much less buggy. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, very little shade the second half of the hike.

Seriously amazing!! Seeing 10 waterfalls in 3.5 hours is pretty incredible. I guess it was really 9, the winter falls was dried up. One of my favorite hikes ever. Cool, shaded, beautiful paths, very easy terrain, and lots of water!! Not very busy on a Tuesday morning. Perfect hike for a warm summer day.

I read all the reviews and tried to do all my homework before going. We were following our gps but then the trail went dead. We printed out the reviews with directions, which helped out sooo much! We kept going down the sketchy gravel rocky road and kept going. And after what seemed like a forever drive, We finally arrived at the white gate! From the white gate the hike down to the creek was not hard at all. Almost missed the first set of ropes. And the ropes at the end with the log was a great assist. Pictures really doesn’t do this waterfall justice. The pictures are pretty but seeing it in person is something else! Something about that place captured my heart! I did not want to leave, it was so hard for me to turn my back away!

We arrived there early 6:30-7 on a Friday and we were there for at least an hour and we had had the whole place to ourselves.

Beautiful, beautiful trail! Very well maintained, I would rate it as easy over moderate. I would recommend starting at the North end, as it is not as busy. Long stretches of quiet and solitude, mostly ran into people at each waterfall. Bring a bathing suit!

One of my favs! Heavy duty hike in full sun. If you're looking for a butt burner / vomit inducer start on Burma Road to Summit Trail, hiking up to First Kiss, then working the backside of Misery Ridge and ending at the Canyon Trail. Have fun and watch out for rattlesnakes, saw one a few weekends ago on the trail.

Plan to spend the entire day. My favorite waterfall trail so far. I feel like the map can be a little confusing. The color maps at each waterfall are easier to understand. If you can't do the entire thing, do the upper falls! So worth it. The Fitbit said we did 10 miles when we were done. I don't think it tracks the in and outs to each waterfall spot. Parking is paid, card only.

This was an easy hike... but SUPER gnarly at the end! The views the entire time were absolutely stunning with lots of great spots to take breaks and get some good photos and views, and even though the parking lot was full (arrived around 1pm) the trail wasn’t as crowded as you’d assume. Mostly direct sun exposure and very difficult and tiring at times, so 100% bring a LOT of water, sunscreen, and good hiking shoes and poles or walking sticks if you have them. The rocks toward the peak are VERY slippery and it’s easy to fall or lose your footing, but it’s doable (two of my friends were in converse and made it out alright!). Last mile is the hardest, but just take your time and push through it and the views are absolutely worth it! Took my group about 2.5 hours to get up (LOTS of breaks and photo ops), and just under an hour to get back down. 7/12/18

Not a very difficult hike, but the grade gets pretty steep toward the top. This wouldn’t be possible to hike for the average person without special gear if it weren’t for the fencing and wires they have near the top to help keep your footing. There are plenty of awesome views all throughout the hike.

My favorite hike near the Oregon coast. Lots of elevation gain and absolutely breathtaking views of 3 snow capped peaks (Hood, St. Helens, Adams) Astoria, and the mighty Columbia River dumping into the great Pacific Ocean.

Absolutely incredible trail. Got up at 5am with the girlfriend, made our trip from Eugene shortly after and started hiking from the South falls. Great hike, very well maintained, not ruff on the feet. Said we did 64 stories at 9.1 miles. Amazing views, with multiple spots to sit an snack. We wanted to come here 3 weeks ago but the directions on this app led us to the opal creek trail instead, which was way far away from this hike, still don’t understand how the directions are so off. The address here is 20024 silver falls hwy se. sublimity Oregon 97385. Follow the road and the signs to the North or South falls parking sites. Otherwise you’ll end up like us a long ways off the 1st time hiking the wrong trails.

Hiked 7/14 (Saturday) and it was very busy at the South Falls where we parked but plenty of parking and room to spread out. First part of hike was awesome, traffic thinned the farther in we got. Picking up a map at TH was helpful. We would cut out Rim Trail if we did it again because it follows the road (but the trees are gorgeous). North Fall is worth seeing, don't take the cut and miss it. Plenty of places to pull over and rest, even behind the falls. We had a delicious lunch and local drafts after at the South Falls Cafe. It was awesome: clean restroom, refillable water station (around side), and a great patio to sit, enjoy, relax.

Hike is about 8.7 miles if you explore the entire loop. Truly a beautiful hike. more easy than moderate, although a few spots have quite a few steps and some points of rapid elevation. Started at the south entrance as suggested and traffic was light once we got going on the trail. Definitely worth it.

By far my favorite waterfall in OR! Breath taking and plan on coming back to see it again!

beautiful at the end. there are multiple starting points. you can park at top in ATV area and take road down walking or drive down closer and park along the road. there us small space at end by actual trailhead. most of hike is along undeveloped gravel road.

It's a great waterfall all right, and you can swim in the big pool below it, but it really is challenging to get to. The road (couple miles) off a pretty smooth gravel road is very rough to the trailhead, which is close to the end of the road and a gate that blocks it. Had no trouble in my Subaru Forester, but went slowly and took the potholes carefully. Parked by the white gate at the end. The trail starts about 50 yards back from the gate and small parking area. The trail is clear enough but both rough and very steep. Ropes along it are helpful going down and back up. The trail along the river is very rocky. Go left upstream when you get down to the river. The deep bowl with the waterfall into it is very striking.
There are plenty of waterfalls in Oregon that are as beautiful and dramatic as Abiqua. For me, doing it once was an adventure, but probably too much trouble to repeat.

Fun little hike. Pretty. Short, but fairly steep so I felt like I got some exercise, too.

Still closed above the bridge.

Definitely start this hike early!! It gets incredibly busy towards late-morning/mid-day. Also recommend starting at the North end trail-head. You won’t hit much traffic until you reach the last 3-4 miles of the trail. You can also hike down to a few of the waterfalls for a swim! Trail is lined with strawberries/blackberries/raspberries most of the way, so the smell is amazing in the summer! Do be prepared for a nice little hike up a decent amount of stairs.

Moderate to strenuous hike depending on your fitness level. Elevation gain is manageable with breaks and the payoff is the views. We went to the second viewpoint to complete the entire hike. The first viewpoint is spectacular. We spotted a herd of elk in the distance, a large vulture flying over, and a garter snake crossing the trail. Fox gloves were still blooming beautifully. Best hike we’ve done in Oregon so far. Definitely prepare for sun exposure as a large part of this you are out in the open.

Get there early. We started at the North end at 9am and it was not crowded. By the time we hit the South end about 11am, it was packed. We continued on to do the loop. Beautiful hike and well worth, you can walk behind most of the falls. When it gets crowded, it is hard for everyone to fit behind the falls though.
One after another, we could not stop taking pictures through the Old growth forests. It is a moderate hike, with switchbacks.

The trail is closed as the logs and rocks have blocked access for walking, this is what we were told when asked at visitor center in Multnomah Falls. We didn't go any further to check but trusted that old guy.

The trail is still closed but we got a chance to view the falls, amazing view.

discovered this over 20 years ago and it never gets old. first time walked 3 miles past the old gate (now a newer, more secure gate) just for fun not knowing the falls were just a bit off in the other direction. very sad to see trash left at and around the trailhead this spring. keep this up and we will all have to hike down from crooked finger rd. maybe that will deter those trashy people from even showing up. the ropes were a nice addition though as it can be a bit slick in the extra rainy season.
