The view was amazing! We did the longer route about 3 miles one way so I would consider this as hard hike but everything was worth it.

Was great for swimming and hiking, I did it with 3 kids 14, 8, 6, water was beautiful and clear. Got there early and the parking lot was half full after we got back it was jam packed. Overall it was a really great hike.

I hike this trail several times a year it is easy, but there are a few steep sections. There isn't much if any snow during the winter which makes it an excellent place to hike when other places are snowed in. A couple if years ago while hiking the trail there was a rattlesnake that buzzed at my dog on the edge of the trail. Beware if you are hiking with children. That was the only time I saw a rattlesnake but I have heard them a few times.

Great hike! GO EARLY if you want peace, quiet, and tranquility. We encountered a lot of large loud groups on our way out late morning. Trail is moderately easy but do recommend good shoes as it is long. Forest is stunning and the water crystal clear!

Loved it

Absolutely serene, gorgeous, and amazing. Great trail, lots to see, songbirds, and amazing water sights and sounds.

The lower falls is an excellent hike if you are looking for a fairly short and easy hike with high reward. Be sure to make your way to the base of the falls!

My wife and our 5 kids, ages 16-2 1/2 to Yakso Falls in August 2018. As others have said, it is a long drive, but I think it was worth it as there is a campground with a day use area and another set of falls right next door. The hike was easy for everyone including our 2 year old daughter. The falls were not gushing, but still had plenty of water coming down and the pool at the bottom was crystal clear. Two of us jumped in and swam in the pool, which was freezing cold! Overall, a very nice hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. 4 Stars only because the drive up the gravel road is on the long side.

It’s a great hike for first timers and great for kids. The cave was cool and the waterfall was pretty.

Great family hike. If you can climb over some rocks and loose gravel you can go straight to the base of the waterfall.

I love this trail if I'm looking for a quick, easy walk to a pretty falls. Depending on when you go it can either be busy or very quiet. The mosquitos can get bad in the summer near the falls, but overall one of my favorites.

Boyfriend, me and our dog did this trail June of 2017. Great trail, and our xl dog loved it. The lava rock was amazing! Taking the “off trail” trails to the bottom of the falls is worth it.

Good hike. The .6 is pretty much straight up from the parking lot but you can get right under the falls if you want to! Cool place to see! Follow all of our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists

Easy hike and wheelchair/stroller accessible. My 4 year old had fun running ahead and reading the info signs along the trail. Rare to have the waterfalls alone during the summer & weekends.


We easily completed this trail and Falls Creek Falls in one day without complaints from the kids.

One of my favorites. Gorgeous view

We went on this hike in February. It was chilly and we only ran into a couple other groups. Beautiful area, a short hike to the waterfall. You can enjoy this in just a couple hours.

I’ve done this twice now! It is a beautiful one to keep coming back to. Pack bug spray!!

Amazing hike!! Easy trail for beginners, with the option of a crazy steep trail for the more adventurous. Definitely will be going back here.

Gorgeous hike but could use some signage to guide you to the actual falls. Had a great hike and loved the natural slide.

This was a great short hike, easy for all

Fun hike up and down along the Umpqua River to the finale with Lemolo Falls. I also wish I could have had more time to hike to the bottom of the falls instead of the viewpoint on the side. Still and amazing experience.

It's fun to find the 3rd tallest waterfall and then see the 2nd on hwy 58 (Salt Creek falls). Watson Falls is a short and relatively easy hike with a great end result.

gnarly ass cliff jumping at opal pools bro

Other than a little rocky patch in the beginning the rest was very easy!
Beautiful!! I have MS and my balance can be off often but just using a walking stick made this trail SUPER easy!

Lovely area - long drive in for a short trail though. We took a lot of time to explore the area with the kids. Perfect length for youngers (or orders) who can’t travel as far but enjoy a destination.

Super easy, paved trail, awesome reward. One of the cooler falls I have seen. Go weekday morning or late evening for a chance to have it to yourself!
