Great Trail..

on Lava Canyon Trail

Not for kids or dogs. Watch your footing as it gets very narrow in some spots. It was pouring rain when we went so we had to be extra cautious on the slopes and the ladder.

lots of people but great entry level backpacking

A very pleasant hike. Probably the real question about which direction to take is whether you want to hit lakes shortly after the uphill climb (then start on the Indian Heaven trail) or end with lakes just before starting the downhill (then start with the Cultus Creek trail. In any case, this hike is mainly about meadows and lakes with a few good vistas. And this time of year the huckleberries are amazing, the bugs nonexistent, the the colors beautiful. Pay attention to the mushrooms. There are so many varieties, some of amazing size (large and small) and some with brilliant colors. Take the trails to Deep Lake, Lemei Lake, Deer Lake, Wood Lake - you may as well enjoy the lakes. In all but one case, we had the lakes to ourselves.

cute small falls

Grew up walking on these trails! Peaceful and beautiful

As of now, the old highway is closed due to the Sept 2017 fire that burned though. The view of the waterfall is gorgeous but i does get really crowded. Was able to hike up to the bridge, but any further hiking was closed off.

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

Easy trail, great for families and on-leash dog walking. Draw backs were how busy it was, and parking. Overall, a very nice walk.

I was with Lisa: see below

Start from Cultus Creek side of loop, rather than Indian Heaven. It’s very rocky and steep-we came down that way and wished we’d gone up it instead. A lot of work for end of hike. Overall really enjoyed this hike. Gorgeous views, meadows, huckleberries, lakes, not too many people. Not dusty. Good climbs in and out.

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.

The trail is super short and currently closed. Not a bad trail but the bride and waterfall get very crowded as the day rolls on. I recommend going early. Right bow everything is fenced off, I would wait until the trail is open and the area has had some chance to regrow after these fires

Quick but worth it. stunning views, way too busy

Great falls to see if you haven’t check it out before. Crowded with tourist but it is a sight to see and enjoy. Many of the trails are closed off due to the fire from 2017.

Steeper than expected, but great off leash dog park at the top and amazing views of multiple mountains on a clear day.

Beautiful. Sad it was closed at the end of the bridge. Hopefully it will be open next time. Lots of people too.

Beautiful views and falls. Well marked and paved. Was bummed the trail was closed at the bridge. Still worth seeing the falls. Parking was a breeze because we went early.

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.

Well paved and easy walk up to the bridge. Well maintained.

Easy trail, well paved, quite a bit of incline. The river that flows into the waterfall at the top is very fun to play in. The water is nice and cold to cool you off after the hike.

The waterfall itself is magnificent, and the bridge adds a unique vantage point and looks pretty cool in photos too. I gave it 3 stars because unless you come super early or super late, you’re going to be with hundreds of other people. If you can manage to come when there’s little to no crowds, it’s easily a 5 star waterfall.

This hike really impressed us. We were looking for something a little bit different than the usual mountain hikes were used to, so we decided to give this trail a try. We really enjoyed that the trail was unique, in that you’re quite literally traversing down a canyon adjacent to magnificent gushing water and waterfalls. We enjoyed the views most on the lower portion of the trail, and especially loved the ladders...just got a kick out of those! All in all, we loved it and would definitely do it again!

Fantastic trail

Easy hikes available for every age group

We visited today with our two-year-old. While the hike above/after the bridge is closed, we had a nice quarter-ish mile walk up to the bridge, which is a main viewing point of the falls. Had a kid in a carrier backpack going up the hill, so the round trip was brief, but still made us break a little sweat. Uphill walk but nicely paved. Expect a crowd on the bridge. Parking lot leads right to the falls, so you can’t miss it. Only giving four starts bc main hike was closed and the first viewpoint should be marked as a separate east hike.

Great hike when you're itching to go out, but don't have time to leave the city. Head on up see the famous view of Portland from Council Crest.

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!
