Nice hike. Waterfalls are beautiful. Got a few peeks at Mt Hood. Took the northern path on the return, walked through shin deep snow mid April. Shoulda had our gators on with our waterproof boots :). Great hike all around.

easy trail. done it with little kids w/o a problem. beautiful views of the cliffs, ocean and of course the elephant seal. i was expecting to see more flowers though.

beautiful drive, great easy hiking trails to do with family and little ones.

Redwoods and ferns galore. Fresh air surrounded by nature’s wonders. Great trail...

LOVED this hike, but make sure you bring LOTS of water with you because it is such a hike! Went twice last summer and plan on going at least once every other week this summer =)

Great trail. Was a bit muddy but the shear volume of trees and their size made it a minor inconvenience. Beautiful ferns.

This trail is amazing. It took a while to complete because I kept stopping along the way to admire the beauty of it all. It was an easy, long, and beautiful hike. Definitely one of the best in the area. Here's a video I made to highlight the scenery along this trail: https://youtu.be/8E8vg1rr170

A short hike down to the beach that leads to incredible views of the ocean, rocks to climb on, and a beautiful place for a sunset. Will be back!

Easy and kid friendly. Beautiful drive and beach!

Incredibly beautiful trail with a new amazing view around every corner! There are some old growth and new growth parts. We found ourselves stopping frequently to marvel at these incredible trees.

Dogs are NOT allowed - there was a sign at the trailhead. It also was a bit muddy when we went but nothing too bad.

Really great trail. Plan more time then you typically would on a 5 mile trail because you will be in awe of the Redwoods (lots of pics) also the trail was not busy at all which was a very pleasant surprise. Would highly recommend

Why not spend the night?
We went up in late September and no one was around by the time the sun when down. There are some awesome camp site along the Exposed Ridge area, about 1/2 mile away from the Falls, right next to Ramona Creek.
This is an easy hike, nice areas to camp, and only 75 mins from Portland. Great for a quick,late summer get away.

This was an amazing hike.
We passed boy scout tree on the way, so we found it on the way back. Around every corner opened up to new amazing views of the redwoods. Total milage for one way came into 2.9, because of going off trail to see boy scout tree.
Total miles round trip was about 6.
No huge inclines, overall pretty easy/medium hiking level.
It was so muddy because it rained a day prior. I don't recommend doing this hike in the rain. We went on a lucky sunny day.

Great hike when you want something short and simple but with stellar views. I wasn’t aware that I would get to see elephant seals so that was a nice surprise!

The hike is easy except for a piece where you have to cross the water ... careful if you take a log ... I wasn’t and fell in! The falls are absolutely spectacular!

This was a nice little 10 min walk from the parking lot to the beach. So just a little heads up, there are restrooms, however there are no sinks and the toilets don’t flush, there are no toilet seat covers so bring your own or be ready to squat. I walked with my 15 month old son in a carrier, this was easy on the way down to the beach, on the way back up the hill, it was a bit tough with all of his extra weight plus the backpack I had on, just take your time going up. There are not a ton of people at this location, which is nice for a chill day, it was beautiful, it’s like hiking a trail, then you start hearing the beach, turn a corner and boom! Ocean! We brought lunch and a blanket, walked around the waves were a bit intense, so no one was swimming, but you could put your feet in, this a great place to take pictures, we saw a bunch of elk on a mountain on our way back to our car.

Every time you round the corner on this trail there is a new breathtaking view. It truly is beautiful out here. I went early in the morning and was all alone on the trail - there was silence in the woods and it just added to the ambiance. The creek and waterfall were nice viewpoints, and there were plenty of downed trees along the way that could provide a nice resting spot if you need one or just want to sit and enjoy the view.

Be warned that the trail itself gets really muddy if it has rained within the last week, but you can still navigate it if you proceed with caution. The road leading up to the trail isn’t the most fun for smaller cars - lots of bumps and it’s very narrow - but it’s also manageable with caution.

I loved this trail and will definitely come back again. I encourage everyone reading this to check it out.

LOTS of interesting stops along the way! Make sure to stop at Shrine's drive thru tree.

Fantastic trail, the waterfall is well worth the hike! Be aware, during winter months the road is closed well before the trailhead. From our car, the entire loop was 14.5 miles, far longer than the advertised 6.9! Also, the river was fine to cross for us as we just scooted across some logs, would not recommend this trail to kids if you want to cross the river. Also, I would heavily recommend taking the loop and not just going out and back, both trails are very beautiful and have some different scenery.

Bridge to trail is closed off. Adds 2 Miles to trailhead. (4 Miles to total trip).

This is a wonderful short, easy hike. Amazing views and even elephant seals that you can see below on the beach from the cliffs. Highly recommend.

I completed this hike on 1/6/18 with a couple of friends. The snow in the Rock field was the most challenging part as it was hard to navigate through the trail while sinking in almost a foot of snow in some cases. It is still doable with regular hiking boots if you're up to the challenge. Bring warm clothes; gloves would help. I'd recommend checking the weather before hand too and be cautious and aware of the risks of hiking through ice and snow.

Reaching the trail head was a little confusing on it's own. If it weren't for another user who mentioned following the Table Rock trail sign with the black arrow, we wouldn't have found it. Follow your GPS to the trail as normal but once a few miles away, keep an eye out for the sign mentioned before. Simply follow that main gravel road (there are two forks I believe but remain on the road going up) and you'll reach the top of the road where the hike is. we

Great trail. This is a rather long trail. The terrain is easy to moderate.

Easy quick hike Sunday 12/17/17. No others at trailhead. Took about 2.5 hours to top taking our time and navigating ice. Light snow on old road in beginning, patches of ice and snow on trail up. Snow around 8 inches deep at top. Managed hike using Yaktraks, but boulder field was a bit of a scramble. Trail easy to follow.

Snow on the boulder field bring micro spikes or yak tracks - still passable ! Perfect 10 day today ! Definitely able to make it to the top with our two pups ! Watch out if you put in “ table rock trailhead “ in your GPS you will miss your turn but there is a sign with a hard to read black arrow that will guide you up the right road ! ( posted a picture above) Some snow on road but nothing crazy ! Do it this week if you can !

Really beautiful and not much crowd

First time hiked this trail. The view is so beautiful in winter. Driving there was a challenge, but it was so much fun. The road is covered by ice and snow. You need an 4x4 or an AWD car to get to the trailhead + make sure you have your snow chains with you. My car is Subaru Lagacy Outback. Its clearance was not enough in some parts. I know how to drive on snowy roads, so I didn't have much trouble. The trail: First 0.5 mile of the trail is easy to hike and crowded. It seems like people come here to take their Christmas trees. Between the 0.5 and 1 mile section there is so much powdery snow on the trail. After 1 mile, the ground is frozen, so it is considerably easier to hike. There are fallen and about to fall trees everywhere. I had to stop after 2 miles. All in all, it was a fun day.

I bet it’s gorgeous! Didn’t make it past the river though because the water levels were too high and the dogs wouldn’t have been able to cross safely. Also, FYI - the gate is closed now to enter so you have to park on the road and walk 2 miles in on the paved road. It’s a pretty walk but just adds to the mileage. I will be back again!
