Hopes Map

This trail is popular, so I would recommend hiking on weekdays. It’s the perfect amount of challenging climbs with gradual trails, throughout many different types of geography. Totally worth it for the view—though the best views are just before the summit (I would say). Wear proper hiking footwear!

This was our first time coming here and didn’t really know what to expect as a friend had been suggested it so we thought, why not? If you’re looking for a quiet hike, this is not it. We got an early start but it was a constant stream of people, bikes, horses, etc. Not a big deal to some but not my idea of a hike. It was also clear that many people don’t clean up after their dogs, which was disappointing as I carried my bags the easy 2.5 miles to the garbage. We came from the Hantwick TH and planned to take some trails past the bridge but there was zero signage which for a place like this, you’d think they would have some guide or map other than just elevation. we did the most obvious small loop and called it good as we were getting a little irritated trying to figure it out past that. Like others have said too, hard to see the falls in high water season so maybe a sign to let you know what you may be looking at would’ve been nice. The scenery and bridge were beautiful, it just wasn’t the right “hike” for us.

Probably the best in the city of beaverton. Tons of runners and foot traffic on the weekends, so be prepared to move over. Beautiful lake and water crossings. Enjoyable even in fall.

Great paved road for running.

Great hike, I think it is definitely a new favorite. Lots of people on the portion to the waterfall, but hardly saw anyone up to the summit. Very muddy and a lot of snow, but it is well worth going through for the views.

easy walk. great for young kids and a nice walk.

This is not a trail and not a loop. This is just a paved straight flat path 3.1 miles long. So 6 miles is back and forth. This is basically a city park. The trail also doesn't follow the creek and strays quite far away from it. I frankly don't understand why is it even listed here.

It's a nice but very short stroll near Sunnyside.
Difficult to find the road to the trail due to construction but once there I was pleased.

great hike. awesome views

Really beautiful alternative with all the Oregon trail closures. The climb is not as bad as dog mountain

Easy walk. Great escape from the urban environment and so accessible!

I was literally stupefied by some of the views on this trail! It was well worth the effort to climb all the way to the top of the mountain- and it WAS effort. I’m pretty sure this trail deserves a ‘hard’ rating- but SO worth it.

Nice, wide open scenery with a grey view along the water! Just a little crowded and not much room for exploration.

Beautiful trail, lots of green and a great beach at the end. Downhill all the way out, up hill all the way back.

What a beautiful hike! A bit muddy but otherwise it was perfect.

Amazing trail.. neatly maintained path.. great for kids and elders too.. full of greens and birds.. loved this trail.. would definitely visit next time for running..

Nice rainy Sunday hike with family. Medium traffic, lots of dogs and friendly folks. The first stretch is a bit of a climb. Absolutely beautiful.

I love how green it is here. Lost of moss & some cool looking trees.

Lots of bridges and great waterfall views. Well maintained. Very popular trail. Many hikers with dogs.

This trail is cool year round.

We found this hike to be a little vanilla and relatively crowded. While the path is well taken care of, we tend to go hiking for a little more seclution. During January the falls are more of a set of large rapids but I'm sure they are more appealing during the dryer months. The river setting is nice and there are plenty of opportunities to stop and have a picnic at one of the many park benches provided. The thing that saved the day from total disappointment was the pair of bald eagles we found only 40 to 50 feet up in a tree right off the trail over looking the water. They seemed completely unoffended by our presence and stood for our many pictures of them.

Great trail. Beautiful waterfall and stream system partway up the trail, which is definitely worth a few minutes pause. Quite a burner going up. Trail winds up the mountain between some major (and beautiful) rock formations. There are a couple great spots for a view prior to reaching the summit, but there's not much in the way of a vista once you're up top. Pretty easy coming back down once you make it to the equestrian trail. Be forewarned, though -- it's a mud fest right now, which adds an extra challenge.

fun with 6 of my friends

Great for walking in wet times of the year's due to many paved paths. Would be good for those using wheels, whether bikes to wheelchairs and more. There are also many gravel and raised plank paths. The area is well maintained. I gave it a 4 because although it is a very pleasant walk in the woods, the scenery is just woods. There are many hiking trails in Oregon with amazing views.

Was muddy at the start and at the summit today. But beautiful views!!

Nice trail. If you do all the loops and wander a bit beyond the trail I stretched it into a nice 8 mile walk.

It is well maintained with great scenery the whole trail.

Great hike.

Love this hike. I go when I want a good workout but I always leave with so much more...

No snow at the top, a little bit muddy but not too slick! Incredible views

Very easy light walk, but very beautiful , feels like a jungle
