This falls is well worth the hike!

on Coyote Wall Loop Trail

6 days ago

Pretty hike. You will loop around, and up through grassy hills and then to coyote wall. Would be pretty in the spring with all the wildflowers.

Grew up walking on these trails! Peaceful and beautiful

First go back and read all the reviews that say the trail is steep. Then read them again. I would like to add that the first section is Steep. But it was a great trail, way off the beaten path. We found ripe blueberries, huckleberries, and thimble berries and were rewarded with a terrific view. The road in can get a bit rough in places and make sure you don't miss the little spur off the main road down to the trailhead for the last 1/2 mile.

Beautiful view, but hot! I would call it difficult, rather than moderate. It is straight up hill, with no shade, and the gravelly path made it easy to slip. We never found the waterfall.

Gorgeous views of the gorge and Mt. Hood. Not too strenuous a hike at all. Wear sunscreen and probably some sort of tick spray!

It's my first time and I love it. will come back!

The hike was amazing and especially the top of mountain view is awesome. You can see all mountains around. Road to trailhead some places is too difficult for passenger cars. Better if you drive SUV.

Such a blast! Hiked about a month ago towards the end of July. Moderately trafficked, very few people at the waterfall. You can scurry up to the mid-level pool of the waterfall for a dip in the water and/or go for a swim from the parking lot.

Gorgeous sights and epic heights. Honestly, one of my favorites.

Beautiful hike, close to a road- but a quiet one, so noise was never an issue. Lots of lovely places to stop and eat lunch + nearly constant views of the Clackamas river. Many very small water crossings, never an issue- even in early spring. Trail is very narrow and close to cliff edges at points, but as long as you're paying attention to your footing their isn't a reason to be afraid. Falls has a small viewing area, which can be frustrating if there are groups of hikers.

One of the best viewpoints around. Smoky time of year, but when we reached summit of Silver Star, we had clear views above the smoke layer of St. Helens, Rainier, Adams, Hood, and a bit of Jefferson. Lots of trail offshoots - use the map. We extended our hike to include scramble up Sturgeon Rock (awesome) then a loop back via Tarbell Trail. Warning on Tarbell - new logging roads have been cut through trail...again, use map w/Phone/GPS and you’ll find trail. Also, after parking at Grouse Vista, trailhead starts *across* parking lot from pit toilet (not the other way, which is continuation of Tarbell).

Have done this and other trails in the park. Shady all the way. Parts can be muddy and slippery in the rainy season. Usually not very crowded considering it’s in a city.

a nice hike, though it is near a road so not as remote as I'd prefer. the waterfall is so worth it though!

Easy hikes available for every age group

Beautiful hike that’s not too crowded. We hiked it on a partly cloudy day and the views were still super pretty. If you don’t have an 4 wheel/AWD car I wouldn’t recommend it. I didn’t feel comfortable driving my car over the bridge at the bottom so we parked and hiked to the trailhead for extra 4 miles each way. Worth it though!

Great spot, not crowded, a little too smokey for any views this time, but Ill be going back on a clear day!

The road to the trail head is rough but doable in a stock 4Runner.

Definitely go up Ed’s Trail and come back on the Silver Star path. Breathtaking views of the area.

beautiful...Lots of trails.

Grew up hiking these trails as a kid in elementary school on field trips. A good easy hike for all ages! The suspension bridge is always fun too!

We hike the west, steep, part of this trail with our 3 elderly dogs most days when we’re in our cabin. Our mood and level of fatigue determines how far we continue after the first turn around. The directions given appear to be for the lesser used east end of the trail and to that extent are incorrect. Road 32xx has been decommissioned at the fork. Further, as of a few weeks ago, the bridge has been decommissioned so much of the access is necessarily on foot, extending the effective trail length by about one mile.

Alternatively, park in the Camp Creek Camp Ground, cross the footbridge at the west end and ascend a few hundred yards on Still Creek Trail to its junction with Road 32, turn right, and continue to the Flag Mountain Trailhead, approximately 3/4 mile.

Most hikers (as evidenced by the other reviews and by observation) access Flag Mountain Trail from the western trailhead, where the oft-mentioned steepest half mile is found. Turn west onto Road 20 off Hwy 26, continue approximately 1 mile to Road 20E on the left. The trailhead is about 40 yards in, with parking for several cars. (If no space is available, there are multiple turnouts on Road 20 that can be used.)

still killer views even though we couldn't see the mountains this time through the smoke. one of my top favorites. this trail is hard on dog paws.

Hot hike, flowers are great and geology is amazing out here.

I will be going again but definitely not kid friendly. Next time I'll just take my aussie. It is worth it and beautiful. just not with clumsy kids or dogs. (i have a older aussie who did great and a young pit who did not! they have both done great on trails before this was just too long for my 1.5 year pup)

My daughter was driving her Honda Pilot and was not comfortable with driving up the last 2.4 miles to the trailhead so we parked and walked to the trailhead adding another 4.8 to the overall hike but it was still an amazing hike. I’m pretty sure someone with more experience (and patience) would have been able to make it to the trailhead in her Pilot but she was not about to try. This is the third or fourth time I’ve done this hike but still love it and will probably continue to hike it from time to time.

Was there 3-4 days ago and see I may have walked past another Murray. Nice hike the river was a needed with the hot weather.

Great view at the top! Fairly steep on the last half and if you ignore most of the trails off the main trail it’s fairly easy to stay on track to the top. Turning right at the pile of rocks at the fork keeps you on the main trail. Lots of water in the summer, sturdy hiking boots and wouldn’t recommend taking dogs in the summer.

It’s more like 8.4. It felt long to me haha. It was shaded most of the way. It was rocky and at parts steep and cliffy edges. Many times you can get down to the Clackamas for a cool down. It is always near the river so the view is pretty. Trail goes up and down and up and down etc so it’s fairly consistent. The falls are nice and cool but not a whole lot of room. There are 2 tiers and you can climb up the first. I didn’t see a whole lot of people on the trail but it was fun to watch the rafts and kayaks come by.

This is a fantastic hike. Had my dog with me so had to turn around about half way due to steep rock climb. Pretty slippery and would be easy for her or I to lose our footing and it would be a looong fall down. Didn't want to chance it. Will definitely go back without my adventure buddy to do the whole thing. Love that it is difficult to get to so not too many people (relative to other hikes in the area). On way back down the road there were a lot of cars parked on the narrow road making it difficult to get around them on the washouts.
