Hiked the trail yesterday on a clear, sunny day...beautiful! Saw a Red breasted Sapsucker and busy little Ruby Crowned and Golden Crowned Kinglets. Excellent view south from the summit. Hike is Moderate difficulty. The brief scramble at the top is obvious and easy, no worries. There’s also an easy little alternate trail at the top that approaches the “summit” from the south. No worries! Do the hike and get some great exercise and views.

Such a beautiful hike on a crisp winter morning I recommend this hike to anyone! So many beautiful waterfalls

Phenomenal hike!!! It was warm and sunny in January!!! Lots to see in the first and gorgeous views of the cape and ocean! There some slight up and down. There were some muddy spots but kind of fun to try and get over. At least that’s what my 12 year old step son said. Bring good hiking boots. Great for the family!_

great family hike. can be muddy at times and slippery in some spots. still a great and beautiful hike.

Fairly dry trail for the middle of January. I only rated it a four star because the amazing view point at the top is kind of hard to find because there are two ways to get to the summit and it is easy to bypass the tiny path to the viewing are. Amazing views on the way up and down.

easy hike with a wonderful ending!!!

Not a fan of the road getting there, but the falls are amazing and totally worth it all.

Beautiful forestry and an amazing waterfall.

fun trail with a beautiful over look over the river.

Nice and easy walk. Nice and clean trail with a few falls. It's cool to be able to go behind the last one and just listen.

Great for some easy to moderate wandering. Didn’t see any wildlife or people, a few little mushrooms and picked up some garbage on the unfit settlement loop. The viewpoint was clouded over when I went but it was still a nice little walk.

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

pretty falls

Hiked June 15, 2018 for the first time. Trail is muddy and slippery in quite a few spots. The trail surface is very irregular- lots of tree knobs and roots so that you had to watch your feet at all times. It might be an easy hike by elevation gain, but the condition of the trail, and attention needed, definitely makes this trail a moderate. The view is beautiful at Cape Falcon.

Went and hiked out to the waterfall with my wife on 4 Jan. Trail was muddy is some spots, but nothing severe. The suspension bridge was fun to cross and I enjoyed the lower view of the fall, which is going strong this time of year.

The hike was short and easy, even with the optional North Loop trail. Boots recommended.

Beautiful beautiful hike!

Beautiful easy hike. The elevation is gradually and comes on at a steady pace. Took my wife and kids. Ages 5 and 6. My one year old went into my Phil and teds carrier and onto my back. Highly recommended.

Needed to stretch our legs and the afternoon hike fit the bill. Great views out and back.

Easy hike that had two beautiful waterfalls on it! The first one pours over a cave like structure. You can walk under the first waterfall but the cave does not that much clearance and tends to be muddy but it’s a fun little cave to go into. The second falls are much larger and you can see that one from a distance on a high ledge where the trail ends. Beautiful. You can climb down off of that ledge to get to the foot of the water but it gets pretty sketchy in winter. Beautiful hike.

It was a gorgeous winter day with absolutely no wind & the Columbia mirrored the beautiful blue skies! Our faces were very chilly with the sun on our backs, but we got toasty when we faced the sun. This sweet little trail meanders all along the top of the plateau & offers several icy little ponds. The views were outrageous! I’d love to return in the spring to see the wildflowers in bloom.

Not worth so much mud. The trail is in poor shape because it sees heavy use and is naturally muddy. The end viewpoint is nice, but no better than the many nearby roadside pullouts on 101. Not bad, but very, very average.

would agree with some folks that this leans well toward the hard side of "moderate", but the view is totally worth while. We encountered three downed trees across the trail, so be prepared to crawl over those. Was really muddy in a few places, even on a dry day.

Great winter hike !!

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

Awesome hike and great workout! The views are worth the hike!

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.

I love this trail! Never been up the north side and will do it again. Managed to avoid rain too today, got to the top however couldn’t see much, foggy. Oh well still beautiful, old growth ancients abundant.

Relatively easy trail. Squishy mud as you walk by the falls. I’d like to come back here during the summer to swim in the swimming hole.

It’s one of the best hikes that I have done here in us.... this time of year around with the overcast, the forest for green and live and serene and beautiful... waterfalls were amazing and walk behind certain waterfalls makes you forget where you are
