Absolutely beautiful! The walk was wonderful and doing it counterclockwise meant we saved the best canyons views for last.

Nice little hike. There is a lot of elevation gain once you get to the waterfall in the form of stairs mostly but wasn't bad. I saw an old man with a cane doing it. I love the bridge made from a local tree.

Did this hike last week in the rain. Was still a great hike even in the rain. It was a bit crowded compared to some other trails, but a must do. Beautiful plants and trees during the hike. Nice waterfall at the end. Very easy hike.

Beautiful trail with bridges, tunnels and waterfall. Very easy until the very end there are a few steps to climb up to see the falls.

Overcrowded, extremely easy.

It was an easy hike, my 6 yrs. old son didn’t complain at all. It is a 1.5 miles from Lake Crescent Lodge. Old trees are beautiful. Thumbs up for those that worked hard to maintain the trails. Five star all in all.

Perfect hike for finding swimming holes!

Exceeded expectations

Busy easy hike. Beautiful waterfall!

One of the best hikes I’ve been on. The view at the very top was definitely worth the climb and for that insta pic. The hike was mostly uphill the whole way with ropes to help you climb the steep edges of the mountain near the top. Coming down from the hike was tough in running shoes due to the steepness and loose ground. We were the only group at the top so got to enjoy the scenic view to ourselves. Would definitely recommend!

Did this with my 8-year old granddaughter and son and we all had lots of fun!!

Short, easy trail to a beautiful waterfall. Numerous No Pet signs, but we encountered two fellow hikers who thought they were "special". Each had dogs! Folks, rules exist for a reason. We called each of these gentlemen out for their wrongdoing, but neither cared at the moment. We need to be the stewards of these beautiful areas! Oh, mosquitoes were minimal today.

Awesome short trail. Great to get out and make some memories. Lots of cool places to get to off the main trail as well - just watch for rattlesnakes! We didn't see any but there are plenty of signs. Trail was a bit steep and there is loose gravel so it can be a little slick, but I never felt unsafe. Very cool. Would do again.

Probably would’ve given this 4 stars if it weren’t for the crowds. The trail is short and easy, so it’s hard to spread out from others, especially at the end. The trail is very pretty though, although we found the trail 7-8 miles before it off the road to be nicer just in terms of serenity as well the rainforest type scenery (the name escapes me).

Wow! That was up there with one of the scariest things I have ever done, this hike is not for the faint hearted but the views were spectacular! I only gave it four stars purely because of how scary some of the rope climbs were.

This is such a beautiful area. We loved wandering through the rainforest with our three kids: 6,4,2

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

easy short hike to beautiful falls, the mosquitos/flys were bad (use bug repellent or where long sleeves.) this is a very well maintained, very trafficked trail. visited during a Monday afternoon at the end of July and the trail / parking lot were packed.

we hiked here in the evening, didn't have enough time to hike the whole thing but we enjoyed the 2 miles or so we did hike, trail starts out in the trees then goes down a large hill to the spit. good spot for bird watching, we saw bald eagles. nice ocean view with the mountains in the distance.

The trail is short but very steep and slippery, so be careful when hiking. On the top of the trail you can have a different angel to see the badlands along the road. It's beautiful.

A interesting hike, although it's not for seeing badlands. It's so dry in the trail. I thought I was in another planet.

A nice hike there. The field in the end of the trail is great. Another thing impressed me is the ladder in the trail. It's exciting and funny.

I did not make it all the way to the lake due to lots of smoke from the wildfire in Hamma Hamma not too far away, and very hot. I would classify this as a more difficult hike carrying an overnight backpack. Trail was in good condition, some pesky wasps circling my head for much of the hike. I look forward to trying it again when it cools down and the smoke clears out.

This is a fun hike and if you want a nice view of Lake Crescent and, further in the distance, Canada then definitely do it. I hiked it in a group of 7 people with a few that don’t hike too often and we stayed together just fine. Trail is extremely well maintained but is easy to get to so be prepared to be sharing your spot at the top with a couple other people (not a lot, but probably atleast 2 or 3). Took us about 1.5 hours to get up, stopped for half and hour at the top for lunch and to take in the view, and got down in a little over 45 minutes. Again, the trail is really well maintained so if you like going down hill jogging/running this is a good trail for it as visibility is completely clear and there was nothing blocking the trail at any point.
As many others suggested here, if you want a nice cool down after getting to the bottom, if you turn left instead of right to head back towards the lake you can meander over to the waterfall which is a completely flat “trail” with a couple nice bridges.
Overall would recommend. Not an astounding view but it was beautiful and made for a good morning. Kids could probably do it if they are used to hiking but it is a lot of switchbacks so they might tire out easy, especially in the heat.

Walking on the Spit was great. going out to the light house was way too much for me to do. Starting from the parking lot down to the beach, and out to the log stuck in the ground was 1.75 miles. Just enough for me to do. My wife as able to walk quit a distance more. The hill heading back up from the brach has an incline of about 40 deg. Quite steep. we than walked on the upper trails which was a lot flatter and easy to walk.
Getting on the spit there is a fee of 3$ for the day. well worth it.

Loved this trail! My favorite part was the steep climb as it starts to connect to the castle trail then plateaus out. Really amazing views and I sat there for a few hours just hanging out on the edge where it also forms a 'ravine' but is really more of a sharp drop of loose boulders and rock. Just watch where you place your hands and feet come the summer for rattlesnakes.

One of my favorite views! the Badlands is my favorite place to be and this is one of those hikes with great views and though it's moderate it's well worth the hike! Make sure to have lots of water with you too, as it can get extremely warm even in the shade.
