We went over spring break. Water has a way of calling to me. The sounds, the colors, the mist... Beautiful!

Hiked this today. Go early because it does get crowded. I started around 9:30am and by the time I got back the parking lot and surrounding areas were full. Some muddy spots, so some area are slippery. Beautiful hike! Once you hit the upper Falls the mist will cool you off.

Love this hike! It’s pretty short, but the falls at the end are beautiful. This isn’t a super easy hike for people with disabilities as it is kind of steep and there are stairs, including some steep stairs to the viewing deck. Older kids would enjoy it.

The trail was great! It was muddy like other people said but we live where we live and it didn’t hinder the hike at all. No obstacles on trail and well maintained. So glad this beauty is open! If you want the solitude then take the upper falls hike loop. I had it all to myself this morning and I started late.

Came here on a random heat wave June 2016 because Oneonta was ridiculously busy. To our surprise we found we were accidentally on our way to a nude beach. We didn’t actually leave the trail so we never seen anything. The beach seemed inconspicuous, which seems perfect if you’re into that kind of thing. Overall, not my kind of hike. However, I like forest trails....

This was an easy hike and I love that my fur baby was able to accompany me. There are clear signs of where to drive up to and park. It’s a clean and organized environment as far as parks and hiking trails go. A lot of the trails are paved with some that are more of a natural terrain. I saw people also biking on these trails. My little family went on the Mountain Trail and then the Horsetail Trail to loop back to the visitor center and parking lot area. It was a short loop of maybe 1-2 miles.

Awesome .... had the trail to ourselves it seemed! Snow packed and a great hike for the family. And the kids loved the chance to play in snow.

Wasn’t the best but then again I’m more into long hikes

My husband and I loved this hike. There are two waterfalls and a well maintained trail. I used my trekking poles for stability in the muddy areas and for grip on the steeper parts. I’m pretty heavy and not in great shape, so I took several quick breaks, but it was very doable and I’m looking forward to going back again soon.

This was a great park, there are many trails that weave around. When two trails intersect there are yellow signs that help guide you.
If your looking for a trail with no one else around this is not for you. It is pretty heavily trafficked but not over crowded.

Visited mid-March. Sunny but cold. Most other trails were closed due to the Eagle Creek Fire. Muddy and some sections are steep. Fairly crowded. Hiked with 10yo and 4yo who completed the loop without complaining. Passed a few folks stopping to catch their breath. Upper and lower falls are beautiful. You'll get a little wet at the bottom of the upper falls. Only complaint is the lack of trail markers. Lots of folks were blazing their own.

3/24 Latourell Falls, beautiful!
Crowded, which I didn't like. However, because it was so muddy most people didn't go far..

Great views, lots of fun-but suuuuper muddy right now

Short, easy and beautiful even when covered in snow.

Beautiful, quick and easy.

This trail is spectacular and is definitely worth the walk especially is it’s basically the only falls trail open right now. Definitely do it clockwise.

One of my favorite hikes. Great for beginner hikers or a quick daily walk in the woods. In the spring and summer I do this hike 3 to 4 times a week. Also going on a sunny morning it's a photographer's dream location.

Wide open area at the top with fabulous views of Helens, Hood and Cascade Range. Lots of forests around the base with smooth dirt trails. A very nice new entrance with parking lots, bathrooms, water fountains, benches, information and sculptures. Trails range from paved, to gravel to dirt. Horse trails too so watch out for piles! Busy on nice days but so many trails to chose from!

Beautiful but very popular expect to share the beautiful views. Trail is in good condition but still has areas that are muddy!

Great hike for young kids. My 4 year old handled it like a champ. A lot of traffic on a sunny day with the other gorge hikes still closed but worth it!!!

My all time favorite hike. But it has gotten so crowded in recent years. I visited here just weeks before the fire closed it in 2017.

Very sad. But can’t wait for it to reopen.

Beautiful hike! Wear appropriate shoes-it was pretty muddy.

You can literally drive up too or walk up too this waterfall it's so pretty!

Short moderately steep but the stairs helped. May 2017. Enjoyed the views and the lush green. And the waterfall was beautiful. Wish I was in better shape for the hike back out, had to stop once to catch my breath.

Amazing beginner hike. Definitely will be back

Had so much fun! A few areas were a little not kid friendly with a 2 and 4 year old but we just carried them. His is an amazing hike!

Not easy to find the trailhead but good sort hike for kids and dogs.

Went and hiked this on our way back from Seattle WA to CA, it was great the trail takes you to the top of the waterfall then down to the base of the waterfall
