Great hike, perfectly clear day so the views were fantastic. I did the 2 mile upper hike so it was easy

Excellent hike! The roots and puddles were a bit difficult but all around an amazing hike!! So gorgeous!!!

I e only ever done the very short part of this hike where we loop back after the suspension bridge but this time we decided to go right and continue on. I looked at the map and I saw where we could stay in the Lava Canyon trail by keeping left at the bridge. Once we hit SCOTT trail we took a little break over looking the river. We decided to go down SCOTT trail u til it met up with the upper part of Lava Canyon trail. It is t marked but you can see the trail to the left. Also I knew it was only .3 of a mile. They really should put signage there. The upper trail is all up! Looks like an old Forrest access road overgrown. But we had to take a couple short breaks to rest. It’s over 3 miles up. I believe we climbed about 1204 feet. I could definitely say no dogs past the suspension bridge and this is definitely rated HARD in my book. Scary at times. I am glad I did it.

quick and easy hike, keep right at the fork to go up to the waterfall. some rocky spots but nothing challenging.

This is a great trail on a clear day. The views at the top are really beautiful. There is loose rock at some points along the trail but overall it wasn’t too bad. Be careful going downhill. Took a little over 3 hrs to complete round trip.

My brother & I hiked this trail and it was yet another GREAT and WORTHY hike for sure.
There are some pretty AWESOME views on the way to the ASTOUNDING looking waterfall and is also a very good hike because the journey back has different views and is a different cool trail because it's a loop hike.

P.S. There are some GNARLY potholes on the way to the parking spot but as long as your aware of how and where your driving even a compact car like mine is able to make it without damaging your vehicle.

Awesome hike to this Clatsop County high point. On a clear day you can see Mt. Rainer, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Nehalem Bay, the PacificOcean and the mouth of the Columbia River.

The muddiest trail ever. Crazy tree roots. Pretty views. Great for kids and not hard.

Beautiful hike and fairly easy. Ramona falls is gorgeous and a lot bigger that expected. Highly recommended.

This was by far my favorite hike of 2018. Challenging, beautiful, fun and plenty to see. Went of trail to get behind and underneath some waterfalls, but nothing too crazy!

Awesome short trails. The kids loved it. Great views.

First of all, what the sh*t Nancy. Dropping a trail's rating just because you don't know how to Google or call a ranger station is BS. (Referencing the below review).

This is an awesome trail with excellent payoff for moderate work. There is a primitive campsite up there too, but no campfires especially right next to the burned area! Next time Im tempted to hike in my gear and stay the night! World class views of Hood, Three Fingered Jack and South Sister, and obviously Mt Jefferson taking point and center. The cave was an awesome added bonus, you must follow literally foot prints and somewhat of a trail downhill through the burned area after passing through the campsite. Be careful as its slippery. The trail all around was enough to feel accomplished but also easy enough to not feel ragged. I started around 430pm and was back to the car at 730pm after watching the sunset from the summit. Total distance on my pedo said just under 6 miles.

Amazing hike. Amazing views. Love burning calories on this trail!!!

Very picturesque and mild hike. The elevation climb was gradual that it felt very easy. It was an overcast day so we kept a good pace. The river crossing was easy since the water was low. The falls were smaller than I imagined but still quite beautiful.

Really great Fall hike, the colors were amazing. Highly recommend for this time of year

This was a beautiful hike! As others have stated, my only complaint is that you could see the road most of the time. Everything else was so beautiful that it didn’t really bother me. I definitely recommend going during the beginning of fall because it’s so beautiful when the leaves are starting to change and fog is dwelling around the trees. The waterfall was much bigger than I expected. Not very trafficked - even for a Saturday. We hung out at the waterfall for a good 30-45 min before people arrived.

Gorgeous hike with amazing views of the Columbia River, the coast line, and five major mountain peaks on a clear day. It's mostly forested and easy the first half and exposed, steep, and rocky the second half.

Be sure to take the .2-mile spur to Humbug for more gorgeous views. This hike is easy enough if you're fit, but don't let it fool you, because it can also be treachorous. I strongly recommend good hiking boots with tread and hiking poles. The second half is steep with loose rock and wire fencing embedded in the ground that can be slippery without proper footwear. Even though it's short, be sure to take your ten essentials and enough food and water in case you're stuck with an injury. It's easy enough for the strongest hikers to sprain or break an ankle.

Well worth the hike. Definitely not easy, but I’m no expert hiker and did fine.

so worth it

Fun hike this summer. The fall's were worth it. Just remember to get your trail use permit. I didn't know the US Forest Service was requiring them and got a $5 warning ticket!

A great hike with amazing views. It was a bit cloudy but when it cleared it was worth the hike!

Absolutely beautiful!

Well worth the trip - easy drive up. 90% uphill on the way up so a pretty easy way down! Super windy at the top but the views were some of the best I've ever seen. a few picnic tables spread through out to bring some snacks and rest up! Low traffic end of September

It was 10 miles round trip to Pup Creek Falls from the Pup Creek trail head. Took me about 4 hours round trip which included fast walking and about 35 min of playing around at the falls. The trail does have some mileage markers which is nice. The falls has 3 tiers and I believe the second tier is accessible by climbing steep rocks. Overall, great hike and another beautiful PCNW waterfall.

I feel so blessed to have been on the top of this mountain on a clear day. We saw Mt Ranier, Mt St Helen’s, Mt Adams, Mt Hood, and Mt Jefferson. We stayed at the summit exploring and taking pictures for a good hour and completed this hike in 3 hours including that time on top The chicken wire on the trail helps with footing. This is a must do hike. You see the ocean and the snow capped mountains

Great hike. Long but many different terrain

Beautiful. Only downfall is you never get away from the road noise or power lines. Saw multiple camp spots along the river. Would recommend wearing hiking boats there are a lot of rocks on trail. There is a swimming hole above the first fall.

Great trail. If you want to beat the crowd show up by 8

This is a beautiful easy to hike Clackamas River Trail.
The trail has enough elevation to make it worth while to wake up for and have a light workout without getting too exhausted by end of the day.
It is advisable to wear a pair of shoes with good traction and tracking polls are very highly recommended.
Have fun and enjoy every step of the hike.

Nice hike, the waterfall at the end is pretty and it wasn't very crowded even with the beautiful weather today. We parked in the lot before the Bridge of the Gods, you'll need a NW Forest Pass to park here.
